Abolishing Medical Debt. For Good.

about RIP



Welcome to your “decision” page. You can choose to abolish medical debt for the general community of medical debtors in America, OR you can devote your full contribution to abolishing medical debt for current or former members of the U.S. military.

Your donation to RIP Medical Debt helps us buy and forgive an average of 100 times the amount in unpaid and unpayable medical debt. A donation of $100 may forgive $10,000 in medical debt.

Your donation is tax deductible. The IRS recognizes Medical Debt Resolution (RIP Medical Debt) under section 501(c)(3). Our EIN number is 47-1442997.

More than 90 percent of your donation goes for buying debt. The rest goes for expenses like data acquisition and mailing debt forgiveness notices in our yellow envelopes.

No donated funds go for staff salaries. Benefactors have separately funded basic RIP operations through 2018. (We are tremendously grateful!)

Recipients of RIP debt forgiveness have no adverse tax consequences because debt forgiveness is a charitable gift, no obligations, no strings attached. RIP simply abolishes their medical debt. For good.

Only you know how much you can afford to help out another person — and likely a total stranger. Kindly perform  “a random act of kindness,” and give what you can. Thank you in advance.

RIP can forgive medical debt for any community in the USA (as we’ve done in Florida, Minnesota, California, and a dozen other locales). If you wish to help your community, please contact us for information about conducting a local campaign.

Because RIP buys debt in large batches, we are not able to abolish debt for any individuals on request, not yet. We’re working on a solution. Stay tuned. 

Please review our ways to help and get help pages. If you still have questions, please contact us.

RIP Newsletters: Any donation to RIP prompts an email confirming your subscription to our occasional donor newsletter (double opt-in). If you do not wish to subscribe, ignore the email.

Thank you for donating to RIP Medical Debt!
