Trip Details

Trip Dates:  April 7-14th, 2019

Trip cost:  The cost for this trip is $1,050 for Benefit members of Thrivent Financial and $1,400 for Associate members and non-members; airfare and entry/exit fees are not included.  That cost is tax-deductible in most cases.

To verify your membership status with Thrivent Financial, please use the following link:

If you’re eligible for the Benefit member trip price, you will be directed to a registration page. When completed, enter the email address chris@lovelandhabitat.org to confirm your registration.

Donation:  Thrivent Financial will be providing a donation to the host program on behalf of our team, and our team is welcome to raise funds above and beyond that amount to support safe, decent housing locally.  That’s just one of the many ways in which Thrivent Build Worldwide teams serve families each year.

Due date:  The trip cost is due no later than February 21st, 2019. You can fundraise it or pay out of pocket.  After the due date, you might continue fundraising over the trip cost so that Habitat keeps building after our team heads home.

If you’d like to hear more about fundraising options, let me know.  We want to make these trips available to all interested parties; and there is a tool we can use to do so.
