Thrivent Choice

If you are a member of Thrivent Financial, you have an easy way to help support Pathways.

How it works:

Through Thrivent Choice, a charitable grant program, you can help choose where Thrivent Financial distributes some of its charitable funds each year. The program has two components: Choice Dollars and Voting Events.

Eligible benefit members are designated Choice Dollars. By directing Choice Dollars, you can request funding for thousands of Christian organizations such as Pathways. Potential designated Choice Dollars amounts that can be directed range from $25 to $500 for each eligible member.

Through Voting Events, all members age 16 and older can vote to help choose where Thrivent Financial distributes funds among a short list of national organizations. Voting Events occur one or two times each year.

If you are eligible to direct Choice Dollars, you can direct them to Pathways today. If you are uncertain about your eligibility visit or contact your local Thrivent Financial representative.

Legacy Gifts

Support Pathways with a memorial, honorarium, asset gift, estate gift, or deduction from your IRA.  Contact the Pathways office for more information.
