Thrivent Choice Dollars℠

Are you a member of Thrivent Financial for Lutherans? You might be eligible to donate to Lutheran World Relief with Thrivent Choice Dollars℠

Here’s how:

  1. Go to or call 800-THRIVENT (800-847-4836) to find out if you have Choice Dollars to direct.
  2. Let your Thrivent representative know you want to direct Choice Dollars to Lutheran World Relief.
