Thrivent commits more than $9 million to Habitat for Humanity

Thrivent Financial for Lutherans announced that in 2012 it will fund the construction and rehabilitation of 142 Habitat for Humanity homes in 32 U.S. states through a $9.2 million contribution. Thrivent’s total seven-year support of Habitat for Humanity will surpass $160 million in 2012.

Habitat for Humanity’s relationship with Thrivent Financial brings the financial, volunteer, and advocacy resources of Thrivent together with the affordable housing construction leadership of hundreds of local Habitat for Humanity affiliates. To date, more than 480,000 volunteers have donated more than three million hours to construct 1,600 homes in the U.S.

“Thrivent Builds lets you see family life from a different perspective,” said Brad Hewitt, president and CEO of Thrivent Financial.
