Make a difference from afar

Virtual volunteering & online gift matching

Exciting update!

We've met and exceeded our COVID-19 matching campaign goal! We received more than $2 million in donations and we increased our match amount to $1 million for a total impact of more than $3 million.

And while the match has been met, you can still make a fee-free online donation through Thrivent.com, and we'll make sure 100% gets to the organizations you care about.* Additionally, we’re committed to providing you with impactful ways to make a difference from afar. See below for some ways to get started and check back often!

Doing good from your own home

  • Direct Thrivent Choice Dollars®. We have more than 40,000 organizations enrolled in Thrivent Choice. There are many food banks, shelters and other community organizations that need critical funds right now. Direct Choice Dollars® today.
  • Lead a Thrivent Action Team. Check out a list of unique ideas to help give back and make a difference in your community. Get started today.
  • Share your expertise. Connect online through social media and share your gifts. Personal budgeting, art, cooking, yoga and nutrition are all timeless and relevant topics.
  • Be a pen pal. Drop a note to people in care facilities who may not be allowed visitors or send thank you notes to first responders, teachers or healthcare workers. Self distancing doesn’t have to mean self isolation.
  • Check in on your network. Call, text or email friends and family members. Your support is invaluable when emotions are high.
  • Help limit food insecurities. Offer to shop for the vulnerable in your community or be a neighborhood drop point for others to leave pantry items outside your door. Gather the supplies, sanitize them and deliver to your local food shelf.
  • Create a plan. Every day the needs in our communities are growing. Organize virtual meetings via Facebook or Zoom to brainstorm and share virtual volunteer ideas.

We want to hear how you are helping neighbors in need. Share stories of generosity and inspire others to action!
