Thrivent Choice $

Thrivent choice dollarsYour “Choice Dollars” can help Chisago Lake Lutheran Church

Eligible benefit members of Thrivent Financial for Lutherans can now help choose where Thrivent Financial distributes a portion of its charitable funds through a program called “Choice Dollars.”  This program replaces the funding Thrivent used to give to churches, including Chisago Lake Lutheran Church.  Here is how it works:

Þ Eligible benefit members receive a letter telling them how many Choice Dollars they are able to direct.

Þ The number of Choice Dollars is based on qualifying insurance premiums, qualifying contract values, and Thrivent Financial volunteer leadership.

Þ Choice dollars can be directed to thousands of Lutheran organizations, INCLUDING CHISAGO LAKE LUTHERAN CHURCH.

Þ Potential amounts range from $50 to $2500 for each eligible benefit member.

So, Thrivent members, please strongly consider directing your Choice Dollars to Chisago Lake Lutheran Church.  We have the  potential to receive more dollars from Thrivent than under its former system, but we need our eligible Thrivent members to CHOOSE CHISAGO LAKE LUTHERAN!
