The University of Wisconsin-Platteville Online is pleased to announce that it is now a part of Thrivent Financial’s Thrivent Choice® program. Thrivent Choice® gives eligible members the opportunity to recommend where to distribute some of Thrivent Financial’s Choice Dollars® charitable outreach funds. Members can choose to direct Choice Dollars® to enrolled 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, including churches, camps, schools and other nonprofit organizations.

Thanks to UW-Platteville alumni and Thrivent members, UW-Platteville Online will now be an option for directing the charitable outreach funds. Contributions will be used to fund curriculum updates and program development for the division according to Dawn Drake, Executive Director of Alternative Delivery Systems, where the division is housed.

“We are enthusiastic about this new opportunity and thankful that our alumni nominated us for this program,” Drake said. “The funds we receive will allow us to continue our goal of improving online education. Allowing our alumni this opportunity to support us is very exciting.”

In 2015, more than 313,700 benefit members recommended where Thrivent Choice® dollars should be distributed. More than $54.2 million of charitable outreach funds were dispersed through the program.

“Our organization is membership-owned and member-governed,” said Brad Hewitt, CEO of Thrivent Financial. “Thrivent Choice is designed to let members recommend where Thrivent Financial distributes part of its charitable outreach dollars each year and feel more personally involved in Thrivent decision making.”

Alumni who have Choice Dollars® available are encouraged to direct funds to UW-Platteville Online. To learn more about Thrivent Choice, visit
