Every dollar you donate forgives $100 in Medical Debt
Our campaign is built on compelling facts involving the number 100. First, RIP Medical Debt famously offers a 100 times multiplier, which means every dollar contributed retires about $100 in debt for people in deep need. Second, we will match 100% of the first $100,000 raised. (The match means your dollar is multiplied 200 times!) Finally, contributors can be encouraged that Charity Navigator gives RIP Medical Debt an Encompass Score of 100 out of 100.
Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.Matthew 25:40
Campaign 100 is sponsored by Brock and Tami Rule. We are Jesus followers seeking to love our neighbors. RIP Medical Debt is an amazing leader in helping the “least of these.” Now is a good time to show how people can come together and work for the common good–people of any faith, all faiths, or no faith. Please help as you are led.

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