An Appeal from the ELCA for Lutheran Disaster Response
and info for Thrivent Members
on how to have your donation matched by Thrivent Financial

Now that the devastating impact of Hurricane Harvey is coming fully into focus, we see that the need will be great and recovery will take many years.

Your gifts to Lutheran Disaster Response designated for “Hurricane Response – United States” at this time will be used in full (100 percent) in responding to Hurricane Harvey until the response is complete. You have an opportunity to make sure our neighbors in Texas and Louisiana are not forgotten.

The work of Lutheran Disaster Response is comprehensive and extensive. From when the news breaks to years after the headlines fade, from hurricanes in the United States to flooding in South Asia, we’re there – walking alongside disaster survivors and helping them recover and rebuild for as many years as it takes. I also invite you to be part of our multiple responses to disasters in the U.S. and around the world by making a gift to Lutheran Disaster Response where it's needed most.

$3 million match on personal donations*
Thrivent will match up to $3 million in personal donations made online through to specific disaster relief organizations responding to Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
