Thrivent Choice Dollars ®
Thrivent Financial is a not-for-profit corporation that does not pay federal taxes. Because of this, they give back to the community what they would have had to pay in taxes; one way this is accomplished is through Choice Dollars.
If you are a Thrivent member and pay premiums for their products, you most likely have Choice Dollars to direct to any charitable organization listed on their website. Choice Dollars directed to the LWML Kansas District support God’s Gracious Gift Fund.
