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.

Inspiring generosity with your Thrivent Funds



Giving back is an important value of Thrivent, as well as many of you. You can give back to causes you care about from your Thrivent Funds account in three ways:

1. Donate shares of your Thrivent Funds to a charity of your choice.

You can gift a portion or all of your non-retirement account shares to a charity of your choice through a transfer of ownership (see the next section for retirement accounts). Not only will this help support a cause you care about, it may also provide you with potential tax benefits. That’s because you may be able to include the value of the shares you donate as a charitable deduction.*

To donate this way, you would need to complete the Change of Registration form (MF23432) with all account owners’ signatures. If the charity you select does not have a Thrivent account, the charity will also need to complete a Business Entity Information form (MF23438) and the Transfer of Ownership Suitability form (26872). The charity may complete these forms on its own or, if you have a Thrivent financial professional, you may connect them with your financial professional.

2. Direct your Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs) on retirement accounts to a charity of your choice.

In retirement, when you need to make required minimum distributions (RMDs) from your retirement account, you may choose to donate these distributions directly to charity. An RMD is the minimum amount of money you must withdraw each year from a tax-deferred retirement plan after you reach age 73. When you reach 70½, you can request up to $100,000 be sent directly to a qualified charity as a non-taxable distribution from your IRA. The qualified charitable distribution (QCD) also counts towards your RMD for the year once you reach age 73. But if you make deductible traditional IRA contributions and also request a QCD, the QCD amount will be reduced by the amount of the traditional IRA deductions. Generally, you would be required to pay ordinary income taxes on those withdrawals. However, you may distribute up to $100,000 per year (even if that is more than your RMD) from an IRA directly to a charity and, by doing so, the amount does not need to be recognized as income for federal tax purposes.

Individuals may also make a one-time QCD contribution of up to $50,000 to fund one of either a Charitable Remainder Unitrust (CRUT), Charitable Remainder Annuity Trust (CRAT) or Charitable Gift Annuity (CGA).

To donate an RMD, you would need to complete the Qualified Charitable Distribution Request form (29998) for mutual funds.

3. Donate fund shares as part of your estate plan.

As you think about your legacy and prepare an estate plan, it is possible to assign a charity as a beneficiary on your fund shares and potentially reduce taxes on your estate.* This will direct your assets to a cause you care about upon your death and allow you to make a lasting impact. To assign a charity as the beneficiary, you would need to complete a Beneficiary Designation Request form (MF307).

With any of these options, you can use your gift to establish a donor-advised fund through Thrivent Charitable Impact & Investing®, which is a public charity. A donor-advised fund through Thrivent Charitable Impact & Investing provides an efficient and strategic option for your charitable giving and may have tax benefits. Visit for more details.
