About this Fundraiser:

Inspired by other United Church of Christ (UCC) congregations in Chicago and around the nation, we are a group of 31 UCC churches in the San Francisco East Bay working together to erase the medical debts of our neighbors in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. We can purchase the available debt for Alameda and Contra Costa county for just under $50,000. If we can raise that amount, we will be able to erase $2.6 million in debt in Contra Costa and $2.1 million in Alameda. It is our intention of raising $50,000 by Easter Sunday, April 12th, 2020. Will you join us NOW and help us erase these debts by Easter Sunday?

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.
