Matching Gifts

You can increase your gift to Chaplain Partnership if your employer, or your spouse’s employer, has a gift-matching program that matches all or a part of qualifying donations. Check with the Human Resources Department to see if your employer (or your spouse’s) matches gifts.

Stock, Securities and Mutual Funds

Market conditions have created an ideal giving opportunity for stocks and bonds, which you can transfer to Chaplain Partnership with tax savings for you.

Real Estate

You may give private, commercial or agricultural property to Chaplain Partnership. If you are considering such a gift, please contact Howard Chavalia at so that we can work together to decide the best use of your gift.

Planned Gifts

Planned gifts are commitments that are arranged today but usually come to Chaplain Partnership after your lifetime. Some examples include designating a gift in your will, or designating Chaplain Partnership as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy. Your planned gift helps to ensure the ability of our chaplains to provide spiritual care for patients, families, and the staff who work with them far into the future, while matching your overall financial planning goals. Please contact Howard Chavalia at to find out more about planned giving options.

Thrivent Financial for Lutherans

Thrivent members can make a donation to Chaplain Partnership through the Thrivent Choice program which has replaced the Giving Plus program. Through Thrivent Choice, members help make decisions on where Thrivent Financial distributes a portion of its charitable funds each year.

The program is divided into two parts: Voting Events and Choice Dollars.

Through Voting Events, members can vote to direct funds to national organizations selected by Thrivent. Voting Events occur one or two times each year. Choice Dollars are designated to eligible benefit members who choose where to direct their dollars from Lutheran organizations nationwide, including Chaplain Partnership.

Please consider supporting Chaplain Partnership with your eligible Choice Dollars. To do this, simply notify Thrivent of the portion of your dollars that you would like designated for Chaplain Partnership. You can visit Thrivent online to register your request or call Thrivent Choice at 800-THRIVENT (800-847-4836).
