Thrivent Financial for Lutherans approved Women of the ELCA to receive Choice Dollars through the Thrivent Choice charitable giving program. Last year, more than $72 million was distributed through Thrivent Choice. We encourage you to promote this new stewardship opportunity for Thrivent Financial members in your congregation. 

Here’s how it works: Each month, eligible members accumulate Choice Dollars in their online account. With a click of the mouse, members choose to distribute their Choice Dollars to one or more of the Lutheran-affiliated recipient organizations. To give Choice Dollars to Women of the ELCA, search for “Women of the ELCA” in the organization catalog.
