Dads Against Debt

This Father’s Day, we are asking for your help with a personal and heartfelt request. Instead of the usual Father’s Day gifts this year, we’re embarking on a special campaign.

We are raising money to erase the medical debt that burdens millions of American families. Through the non-profit organization RIP Medical Debt, every $1 donated erases up to $100 in medical debt for someone in need.

Every $1 donated erases up to $100 in medical debt!

Did you know:

  • Medical debt is the #1 cause of bankruptcy in America
  • There is more than $195 billion owed nationwide
  • Nearly 50% of U.S. adults struggle to afford healthcare costs. For Black, Hispanic and low-income adults that figure jumps to at least six in ten.

So this Father’s Day, would you help relieve the burden of overwhelming medical bills by making a contribution? No donation is too small to make a significant impact on the financial recovery of families with medical bills they can’t afford to pay. 

Dalbir, Jared, and Allan


P.S. interested in getting the word out? Join us as a Dad Ambassador and encourage your family and friends to support RIP Medical Debt by posting on social media. We’ll provide you with content to share with your friends and family every 4-7 days leading up to Father’s Day.

How RIP Works

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

  • You make a donation

    We use data analytics to pinpoint the debt of those most in need: households that earn less than 4x the federal poverty level (varies by state, family size) or whose debts are 5% or more of annual income.

  • RIP buys medical debt at a steep discount

    We buy debt in bundles, millions of dollars at a time at a fraction of the original cost. This means your donation relieves about 100x its value in medical debt.

  • Together we wipe out medical debt

    People across the country receive letters that their debt has been erased. They have no tax consequences or penalties to consider. Just like that, they’re free of medical debt.

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.
