This ETF is different from traditional ETFs. Traditional ETFs tell the public what assets they hold each day. This ETF will not. This may create additional risks for your investment. For example:

 - You may have to pay more money to trade the ETF’s shares. This ETF will provide less information to traders, who tend to charge more for trades when they have less information.

 - The price you pay to buy ETF shares on an exchange may not match the value of the ETF’s portfolio. The same is true when you sell shares. These price differences may be greater for this ETF compared to other ETFs because it provides less information to traders.

 - These additional risks may be even greater in bad or uncertain market conditions.

 - The ETF will publish on its website each day a “Proxy Portfolio” designed to help trading in shares of the ETF. While the Proxy Portfolio includes some of the ETF’s holdings, it is not the ETF’s actual portfolio.

The differences between this ETF and other ETFs may also have advantages. By keeping certain information about the ETF secret, this ETF may face less risk that other traders can predict or copy its investment strategy. This may improve the ETF’s performance. If other traders are able to copy or predict the ETF’s investment strategy, however, this may hurt the ETF’s performance. For additional information regarding the unique attributes and risks of the ETF, see the Principal Risks section of the prospectus.

1 New accounts with a minimum investment amount of $50 are offered through the Thrivent Mutual Funds "automatic purchase plan." Otherwise, the minimum initial investment requirement is $2,000 for non-retirement accounts and $1,000 for IRA or tax-deferred accounts, minimum subsequent investment requirement is $50 for all account types. Account minimums for other options vary.

Thrivent ETFs may be purchased through your financial professional or brokerage platforms.

Contact your financial professional or brokerage firm to understand minimum investment amounts when purchasing a Thrivent ETF.

Donor-advised funds combine charitable giving and investing

Are you driven to put some of your assets to work to help others or support a charitable cause?

Through a vehicle known as a donor-advised fund, you can use your assets to do good. Allocate your charitable contributions to a donor-advised fund where they are invested to grow, and then direct them to charities of your choosing and a time of your choosing. You may receive a tax benefit for your donations, based on when and how you give.

Flexibility is one of the key benefits of donor-advised funds. You don’t have to decide immediately which charities you want to support. You can donate your money this year—and potentially receive a tax benefit for your donation—then decide later which IRS-qualified charity or charities should receive your donations.

In the meantime, the assets in your donor-advised fund are invested in managed investment portfolios options offered by the sponsoring organization.

For example, Thrivent Charitable Impact & Investing® (Thrivent Charitable) offers eight investment options with choices designed to align with your values and financial goals:

  • Thrivent Charitable Impact FundTM is an actively managed investment strategy focusing on high-performing enterprises that help heal, support or advance our neighbors and our world.
  • Thrivent Portfolio has three funds based on risk tolerance and time. These actively managed funds are made up of stocks and bonds from different sectors, regions and styles—together in a single fund—helping to reduce risk. The funds, each with a different allocation, target various risk-based objectives.
  • The Index Portfolio also has three funds based on risk tolerance and time, but the investing strategy focuses on an all-index, fixed-allocation approach targeting a complete portfolio in the fund.
  • And for investors looking for the lowest risk level, Thrivent Charitable offers the Vanguard Federal Money Market Fund which is 100% cash. 

In most cases, you can choose to allocate your assets among one or more of the eight offerings.

Here are some of the other key options that are typically available through donor-advised funds:

Give now. You can invest your donations in a donor-advised fund anytime with cash, stock or real estate, and decide later the charities you want to support. For gifts of long-term appreciated securities or real estate, you may be able to bypass capital gains taxes on the appreciated value.

Give later. You can arrange to donate life insurance, bequests or beneficiary proceeds upon your death into a donor-advised fund, and then an organization like Thrivent Charitable distributes those funds according to your wishes. This streamlines your donations, making it easier for your heirs.

Choose your charities. You can support any IRS-qualified charity and even request a specific grant purpose. You can also create a scholarship or simply name an area of charitable interest you want to support.

Build your legacy. You can name successor advisors, such as family or friends, to get involved in giving decisions and continue your legacy. 

Stay informed. Monitor your donor-advised fund activity through statements and online access.

Thrivent Mutual Funds is proud to collaborate with Thrivent Charitable to help people take action on their faith, values and life experiences by giving.1 Through Thrivent Charitable, thousands of donors have given more than $2.15 billion in outright and deferred gifts since inception in 1995. Individuals who create a donor-advised fund through Thrivent Charitable may choose from a broad range of giving options. Certain portfolios include investment in Thrivent Mutual Funds.
