Habitat and Thrivent
About the Habitat for Humanity and Thrivent partnership
For over a decade, Thrivent Financial has partnered with Habitat to build safe, affordable homes in partnership with those living in poor housing conditions both in the United States and around the world. The partnership blends the financial, volunteer and advocacy resources of Thrivent Financial and its members with the hands-on, global experiences of Habitat.
To date, our combined efforts have resulted in more than 5.2 million volunteer hours donated by more than 727,000 Thrivent members and other volunteers as part of the Habitat and Thrivent partnership. Additionally, Thrivent and its members have contributed more than $226 million to Habitat since the Habitat for Humanity and Thrivent partnership began in 2005.
The Habitat and Thrivent partnership consists of two programs:
- Habitat and Thrivent Homes is the largest of the two programs and focuses on improving communities by helping build homes in partnership with families in need of affordable housing across the U.S.
- Habitat and Thrivent Worldwide allows volunteers to travel to international or domestic locations for a week or more at a time to build homes while experiencing other communities and cultures.
In 2018, Thrivent Financial built and rehabilitated 81 homes, in addition to 384 repair projects. The Habitat and Thrivent Worldwide team works in close partnership with the Global Village program, which has been sending volunteer teams around the world for more than 25 years. Also, if you’re a Thrivent Financial member, you may be eligible to receive funding support for a trip.
Can we count you in?
Thrivent Financial encourages being wise with money and living generously. Bring your family or yourself. No experience is needed, and there is plenty of work for all skill sets and abilities. This is a meaningful contribution that lasts a lifetime.
