About this Fundraiser:

JOIN FUMC ADA TO ABOLISH $2M IN MEDICAL DEBT IN SOUTH-CENTRAL OKLAHOMA COUNTIES

The Problem: Two-thirds of all personal bankruptcies in America are tied to a medical event, either because of high costs of care or because it caused the person to be out of work. Each year, more than 530,000 families turn to bankruptcy because of medical issues and bills. It is a heartbreaking and common experience to walk into a store and see stories of financially devastated families taped to glass jars, asking for help to pay medical bills for themselves or a sick child.

Our Mission: First United Methodist Church of Ada teamed up with RIP Medical Debt to abolish debt in Coal, Garvin, Hughes, Murray, Johnston, Pontotoc, and Seminole Counties. Help us raise $20,000 to purchase $2 Million of medical debt in these counties and forgive it. Every dollar of your donation eliminates $100 of medical debt.

Who Is RIP Medical Debt?

RIP Medical Debt uses donations to purchase bundled medical debt portfolios that have gone through collection agencies for months or years. Using third-party credit data providers, it targets debt incurred by people facing financial hardship, and then forgives it. On average, $1 is leveraged to abolish $100 in medical debt.
