With Thrivent Choice®, you can recommend where some of Thrivent Financial's charitable outreach funds go. Since 2010, eligible members have used this program to direct more than $225 million to churches and nonprofits nationwide. The program has been a great blessing for Lutheran Hour Ministries, bringing in more than $920,000 for the ministry!

Lutheran Hour Ministries wants Thrivent members to be able to take full advantage of the Thrivent Choice program, whether you choose to support this ministry or any other. Eligible Thrivent members are designated Choice Dollars at various times throughout the year, based on their insurance premiums, contract values and Thrivent Financial volunteer leadership, that can then be directed to thousands of nonprofit organizations nationwide. Choice Dollars are currently made available to Thrivent members as follows:

• $2.30 Choice Dollars per $100 of annual premium on qualifying insurance products is designated monthly based upon the premium payments you made in the prior month.
• $1.15 Choice Dollars per $1,000 of contract value of qualifying products is designated on a quarterly basis. 25 percent of this amount will be designated to you each calendar quarter based upon the actual contract value at the end of the quarter.
• $50 Choice Dollars for holding a qualifying Thrivent Financial volunteer leadership position is designated once each year.
• Choice Dollar amounts range from $25 to $5,000 for eligible members.

Choice Dollars designated during the calendar year can be directed until March 31 of the following year. For example, the Choice Dollars designated to you in 2015 can be directed until March 31, 2016.

IMPORTANT REMINDER: Please remember that recurring direction of Choice Dollars to organizations such as Lutheran Hour Ministries is no longer an option; you must now go through the gift direction process every time you receive notification that Choice Dollars are available. Thrivent officials made this change at the end of 2012 to ensure that the program continues to be fully funded so that members can contribute as much as possible to the causes they support.

Supporting Lutheran Hour Ministries through Thrivent Choice is very simple. Go to and search under "Lutheran Hour Ministries", "LHM" or "International Lutheran Laymen". Or call Thrivent at 1-800-847-4836. Eligibility requirements can also be found at this web site.
