Membership: Who We Serve
Like all tax-exempt fraternal benefit societies (not-for-profit life insurance organizations), Thrivent Financial is required to serve a group of people united by a common bond. Thrivent Financial was organized for Lutherans and their families. Each individual applying for membership must demonstrate a Lutheran connection or support the organization's mission. That said, many of Thrivent Financial's charitable (fraternal) programs touch individuals of all faiths and backgrounds.
Fraternal Benefit Society
A not-for-profit organization that provides insurance to its members and operates for social, intellectual, educational, charitable, benevolent, moral, fraternal, patriotic or religious purposes for the benefit of its members and the public. These organizations operate under the lodge system, which means a member of the society is a member of a local chapter of the society. Fraternal benefit societies have representative governments, and members share a religious, ethnic, vocational or other common bond.
