Thrive Gives offers free one-year memberships in three ways. First, we work with established nonprofit organizations such as Blue Star Families, Wellfare and FoodCorps to distribute memberships to their constituents.
Second, we distribute free one-year memberships directly on our site via an online application for teachers, students, veterans, nurses, first responders or families in financial need. Applicants that fall under the teacher, student, veteran, first responder, or nurse group are sent to a third-party verification system called ID.me. With ID.me, we are able to instantly verify applicants.
Third, our Member Services team offers a free one-year membership via chat, email, or phone to families in need that have indicated they cannot afford a membership.
If you want to be part of the Thrive Market community but can't afford a paid membership, Thrive Gives is here for you. If you believe you may qualify, you can apply for a free one-year membership online here.
