One of ICMIF’s North American member organisations, Thrivent has launched a COVID-19 donation matching challenge in response to the current crisis and has already exceeded its target after receiving more than USD 2m in donations from its members. The Fortune 500 financial services organisation has pledged a further USD 1m to bring the total impact to more than USD 3m.
Faith-based, Thrivent says it will continue to invite free online donations through Thrivent.com, and says those funds will be allocated by the members amongst the 35,000 organisations that its members most care about.
In addition, the organisation has committed to providing members with impactful ways to make a difference from a distance, including sharing expertise via social media, becoming a pen-pal to those in isolation, shopping for the vulnerable and more.
Thrivent is asking their members to help those in need and share their stories of generosity.
The not-for-profit fraternal society says: ‘Our members are passionate about their communities and giving of themselves. Thrivent is committed to helping members be wise with money and give back to the causes and people they care most about. Thrivent's suite of benefits equips members to express generosity in their own way while making an even bigger impact!’
