What if my organization does not have many Thrivent Members?

Sign them up as Family Associate Members!

  • Recruit 10 to 15 donors to support your campaign and donate unrestricted funds to your organization

    • Be sure to send in these donations to be matched by GivingPlus™!

  • Have a kickoff promotion, where the seed donors offer testimonials and recruit Family Associate Members

    • Encourage each seed donor to recruit 5 to 10 Family Associate members each

    • If a donor is willing to donate only $100, suggest that they write one check to Thrivent Financial for $10 for the membership fee, and the remaining $90 to your organization. This way the organization will receive a total of $135!
