Alabama - RIP Medical Debt

Dauphin Way United Methodist Church Campaign

Every dollar you donate forgives close to $100 of debt in Alabama!

Campaign Created ByDauphin Way United Methodist Church

We the congregation of Dauphin Way United Methodist Church in Mobile, Alabama are targeting the medical debt of our community. What began in a small group, spread to our church and we are praying it will spread to you too: the desire to eradicate medical debt and the financial destruction it causes. According to RIP Medical Debt, “More than 60% of bankruptcies in America have medical debt as a root cause.”

On average, $1 is leveraged to abolish $100 in medical debt.  Our goal is to raise $20,000 in order to eliminate $2 million in medical debt for our neighbors.  Neighbors helping neighbors.

How RIP Works

Over a hundred million Americans, one in three, struggles with the weight of medical debt.

Here’s how we lift them up.

You make a donation

With every donation, RIP uses its precise data analytics to pinpoint the medical debt of those most in need of relief: households whose incomes are less than four times the federal poverty level guideline or with medical debt representing at least 5% of gross income.

RIP buys medical debt at a steep discount

Your donations allow us to buy debt in bundled portfolios, millions of dollars at a time at a fraction of the original cost. On average, whatever you donate has 100x the impact.

Together we wipe out medical debt

People across the country receive a letter that their debt is gone. No taxes. No penalties. Just like that, they’re free of medical debt.

Who We Help

Frequent Questions

Yes. We are a 501(c)(3) charity and your donation is 100% tax deductible.

Relevant Documents:

When we purchase a portfolio of medical debt, we abolish debt for individuals who:

  • Earn less than 4x the federal poverty level (varies by state, family size).
  • Debts are 5 percent or more of annual income.

We only buy debt that has been pre-qualified by our partners to meet at least one of these criteria. 

We never collect on debt we purchase, only relieve it.

No. With your help, we abolish medical debt permanently. Recipients have no adverse tax consequences, obligations, or strings attached.

For those whose medical debts are relieved, the relief is a gift from a detached and disinterested third party (RIP) as an act of generosity, so relief of the debt does not count as income to the debtor. We will not file a Form 1099-C with the IRS.

Due to HIPAA laws, RIP Medical Debt cannot disclose the names, contact information or any other specific details of the debt relief beneficiaries.

RIP Medical Debt cannot relieve debt by individual request.

While we would love to help everyone who needs assistance, RIP Medical Debt cannot abolish medical debt for specific individuals. We approach the problem of medical debt by acquiring large portfolios of debt to help thousands of people at once.

Because medical debt affects so many people who may not have debt accounts in the portfolios we purchase, we have compiled a list of resources that may be able to help in ways RIP Medical Debt cannot.
