This campaign will run until September 19th so please join us as we look to relieve debt for thousands of families across Virginia, Pennsylvania, and the District of Columbia!

As we prayed and sought ways to bring Christ into the lives of those in need in our community, we were drawn into the work and mission of RIP Medical Debt. The number of people who find themselves in debt because of unexpected medical bills is staggering. Unexpected medical expenses can cause a tremendous burden to those families who do not have any savings to cover such costs.  

We are Jesus’ followers seeking to love our neighbors. We invite you to consider joining us in lightening the burdens of central east coast residents struggling with unpaid medical debt.  Every dollar you give eliminates $100 in medical debt for people in deep need. This campaign aims to be a blessing in our communities by eliminating $10,000,000 worth of medical debt. Please feel free to contribute to our $100,000 goal to relieve medical debt for our many neighbors; more than 30 million in medical debt is in this area. 

RIP Medical Debt 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. 

“Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?” He said to him, “What is written in the law? How do you understand it?” The expert answered, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind, and love your neighbor as yourself.” Luke 10:25-27 

We hope you will see how your dollars can be multiplied by RIP Medical Debt to release families from such debt. No one ever thinks that an unexpected illness could cause them to lose their home, and thanks to the work of RIP Medical Debt, many people are being assisted, so that will not happen. This medical debt forgiveness campaign is sponsored and financially supported by Grace Community Church in Fulton, Maryland.   

When RIP Medical Debt pays off medical debt, the family receives a letter telling them how it was paid off. Can you imagine being the recipient of such a letter? What a relief it must be to get such an unexpected letter and to be done by someone they don’t know. That is showing the love of Jesus to a family in great need. 

Now is an excellent 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. Click on the secure “Donate” button to contribute now. 

Finally, contributors can be encouraged that Charity Navigator gives RIP Medical Debt an Encompass Score of 100 out of 100. They are a 501(c)(3) charity, and your donation is 100% tax-deductible.

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.
