About this Fundraiser:

Clergy in Winona, MN are partnering with RIP Medical Debt to offer relief to families and households in the following counties: Winona, Houston, Fillmore, Olmsted, Wabasha in Minnesota and Buffalo, Trempealeau and La Crosse in Wisconsin.

Together we pledge to raise $15,000 which can eliminate $1.5 million in medical debt.

We serve Christian faith communities from different traditions. Some of our communities are large, others are small. Some have abundant resources, others do not. But we are all committed to serving God in whatever ways we can. And we know that even small groups of people can do extraordinary things! We have seen the power of faith to create remarkable change and as we move towards the Easter season of resurrection, we wish to offer the gift of new life by offering the relief from the bonds of medical debt.

As clergy in Winona, we wish to offer relief to our neighbors and friends by relieving the most vulnerable in our extended community of insurmountable medical debt. We understand this relief may apply directly to our members as well as to people we will never encounter. This gift comes with our blessings and no strings. We simply wish to share from our abundance.

Please join us in this effort to change the life of those around us. 

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.
