Thrivent Financial Faith Build
Our Work Together
Thrivent and Habitat for Humanity help families in need of a safe and decent place to call home. Together with our communities—who put God’s love into action by pooling their power and passion—our partnership helps volunteers give and receive on their journey to a more content, confident and fulfilling life.
Since our partnership began in 2005, the impact has continued to grow:
- Thrivent and our members have committed $252 million to build or repair more than 5,400 homes in the U.S. (Thrivent funds up to 50% of each home, and Thrivent volunteers are encouraged to raise additional funds to support Habitat offices).
- Thrivent volunteers will complete more than 1,300 home building trips in the U.S. and around the world to help build even more homes.
- More than 756,000 volunteers have helped build and repair homes.
- Thrivent and our members have donated 5.5 million volunteer hours. That’s equal to 636 years of continuous volunteer work!
About Thrivent Financial and Habitat for Humanity
Thrivent is a mission-driven, membership-owned insurance and financial services organization that helps Christians be wise with money and live generously. Thrivent provides opportunities for its members to give back where they live, work and worship. Thrivent’s partnership with Habitat for Humanity is one example of this.
Habitat for Humanity is a global nonprofit housing organization working in nearly 1,400 communities across the U.S. and approximately 70 countries worldwide. Habitat’s vision is of a world where everyone has a decent place to live. The organization works to fulfill that vision by building strength, stability and self-reliance in partnership with people and families in need of a decent and affordable home.
Our 2018 Thrivent Financial Faith Build Campaign is a great opportunity for the faith-based community to get involved in helping another deserving family achieve their dream of homeownership through a hand up instead of a hand out.

Meet the Homeowner
This year, Zula will be our Thrivent Faith Build Recipient. Zula currently lives in a small rental home that has little insulation which makes it hard to heat in the winter and hard to cool in summer. Due to this, Zula is paying over $400 per month on average for utilities. The bathroom has mold and the home is constantly invaded by ants. The trees surrounding the house are in need of care and look dangerous to Zula. She has worked for two years to become financially qualified for the homeownership program. Her cost of rent and utilities adds up to roughly 60% of her income.
