Thrivent Financial commits $12 million to Habitat for Humanity for 2015
For the tenth consecutive year, Thrivent Financial is committing millions to stabilize, strengthen and secure communities in 2015 through its unique partnership with Habitat called Thrivent Builds with Habitat for Humanity.
In 2015 Thrivent Financial will help fund and provide volunteers for the construction and rehabilitation of 121 homes in the US, repair up to 450 more, and send up to 120 teams domestically and abroad to build more homes. All of this is done through the Thrivent Builds partnership. From the partnership's inception in 2005, Thrivent and its members have now committed more than $213 million and more than 4.4 million volunteer hours.
The partnership consists of three programs with Habitat for Humanity: Thrivent Builds Homes, Thrivent Builds Repairs, and Thrivent Builds Worldwide. These programs allow Thrivent to partner with Habitat and families with limited resources in the construction, repair and rehabilitation of affordable housing in communities across the United States and abroad. More than 4,000 homes have been built or repaired with the Thrivent Builds programs since 2005.
