Thrivent Financial donating cheque to Asanteman

Thrivent Financial donated $10,000.00 to the Asanteman Association of Chicago and Midwest when they met the Ghanaian Community in Chicago to introduce to them Affordable Life Insurance, Disability Insurance and other Investments that promote community improvement projects.

Asanteman Association of Chicago  organized kente dance in 2015 to raise funds to support the Komfo Anokye teaching hospital maternity ward, a project that has been lauded by many Ghanaians abroad and home. They are planning to repeat the kente dance this year to raise funds to support KATH maternity A2 ward which they have adopted, and it is expected that this donation from Thrivent Financial will go a long way to assist Asanteman in their numerous activities to assist the community.

In donating the check, Mr Kevin Cunniff, a partner of Thrivent Financial expressed his appreciation to Asanteman Association for organizing the Ghanaian community to do business with Thrivent Financial and for the projects they embark to help their community. He reiterated their commitment to assist the Ghanaian Community in Chicago. Mr Victor Boafo, secretary of Asanteman who received the cheque on behalf of Asanteman expressed his profound gratitude to Thrivent Financial and pledged to continue to promote the good works of Thrivent Financial in the Ghanaian community in Chicago and beyond.

Thrivent was named one of the “world’s most ethical companies” by Ethisphere Institute for their leadership in promoting ethical business standards and introducing innovative ideas to benefit the public. Their charitable grant program engages Thrivent members and Thrivent Member Networks in providing grants that support charitable activities.
