Thrivent Financial commits $12 million to Habitat for Humanity
For the ninth consecutive year, Thrivent Financial is committing millions to stabilize, strengthen and secure communities in 2014 through its unique partnership called Thrivent Builds with Habitat for Humanity.
Thrivent Financial for Lutherans announced that in 2014 it will fund the construction and rehabilitation of 126 Habitat for Humanity homes in 35 U.S. states through a $7.8 million contribution. Additional funds will support the Thrivent Builds Repairs and Thrivent Builds Worldwide programs. From the partnership's inception in 2005, Thrivent and its members have now committed more than $200 million and more than 4 million volunteer hours.
The partnership consists of three programs with Habitat for Humanity: Thrivent Builds Homes, Thrivent Builds Worldwide and Thrivent Builds Repairs. 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 4,300 homes have been built or repaired with the Thrivent Builds programs since 2005.
