Thrivent Choice Dollars Program


Thrivent Choice Dollars Program

Are you a member of Thrivent Financial for Lutherans?  If so, there are two ways your membership can work to financially support Mindekirken.   Thrivent lets you recommend where some of Thrivent Financial’s charitable outreach funds go by directing Choice Dollars and by participating in Thrivent Voting Events.  

Mindekirken is an eligible organization and these programs have brought in a significant amount of financial support by Thrivent account owners just like you.  You can make a difference!

Thrivent Choice Dollars
To participate, a Thrivent account owner must first enroll in the program.  Once enrolled, Thrivent will, on a quarterly basis, make funds available for you, the account holder, to direct to your preferred organization. You can make that designation two ways – the Internet or by phone. 

Connect to Thrivent Choice and select "GET STARTED" Sign in with your username and password or register for an account.

Once logged in, in the middle of the next page, type in "Norwegian Lutheran Memorial Church" in the "Organization Name" box, "Minneapolis" in the city box and "MN" in the state box and click search.

Next to our church name, select the "Direct Now" button. You will be able to assign all or part of Thrivent Choice dollars to us. You can also set it up so the church continues to get your future Thrivent Choice Dollars.

Click the "submit button" and Thrivent Choice Dollars will be sent to our ministry.

1. Call 800-847-4836.
2. Follow the prompts given.
3. You will be asked for the last four digits of your Social Security number.  Then you will be sent through to an automated operator system.
4. Our church is listed as “Norwegian Lutheran Memorial Church”.

The amount of money made available is based on the size of accounts and other criteria.  Thrivent, on the 5th of each month, deposits those directed dollars to the organizations chosen by you, the account holders.

 Thrivent Voting Events
All Thrivent members 16 and older can vote during specific Thrivent Financial Voting Events to help determine where Thrivent Financial distributes $1 million among Lutheran and non-Lutheran charitable organizations.

To participate, a Thrivent account owner should visit Thrivent Choice Dollars Program for details or talk to your Thrivent representative.
