"Targeting Wake" Christmas Campaign will launch December 1!

The next Debt Jubilee Project has been announced: we plan to raise $20,000 from December 1 - January 14 to target medical debts in Wake County, NC, where over $124M in delinquent debt is for sale.  After buying and forgiving virtually all the past-due medical debt on the market in central NC in our previous campaigns, we begin to chip away with the massive amount of delinquent medical debt owed by poor families in the Raleigh area.  Your church can partner with us to help us buy that debt before a third party collection agency does, so we can forgive the debt and prevent aggressive collection efforts and endless calls.  Check back for more information!

Forgiving Medical Debt

Trinity Moravian Church is partnering with RIP Medical Debt to purchase and forgive medical debt in our area.

Our first project last summer was able purchase — and forgive —  $1,165,796.61 in medical debts in Forsyth and Davidson counties, assisting a total of 1,356 real Triad families.   Our second campaign completed on January 31st, and was able to purchase $3,295,863.64 in medical debts.  We were able to help 3,133 families in Davidson county, 155 families in Davie county, and 67 families in Yadkin county.  Our next campaign will focus on Yadkin, Surry, Stokes, and Rockingham counties (details DBA).

How can we do this?  Medical debt is often sold off to a secondary market for pennies on the dollar.  RIP Medical Debt has created a visionary system where they intervene and buy that hard-to-collect debt for a penny on the dollar.

1 in 4 Americans owes medical debt that cannot be immediately paid.  More than half the personal bankruptcies in the US are due to medical debt.  The US is the only industrialized nation where an illness can reduce a family to poverty.  Until recently, medical debt was included in credit reports, crippling families’ ability to rent an apartment or buy a car.  Families working paycheck-to-paycheck who were “making it” before are driven into poverty by an illness or an accident, and the subsequent medical debt.
