Detroit Medical Debt Relief Campaign

According to the Urban Institute, roughly 1 out of every 3 Black Americans under the age of 64 carry some kind of medical debt, compared to 1 out of every 5 White Americans. 

79% of the citizens of Detroit are Black, and Detroit alone has $66.3 million in outstanding medical debt.

By partnering with the organization RIP Medical Debt, we’re able to buy medical debt for, literally, a penny on the dollar.  So thus far, we’ve been able to buy and forgive nearly $3 million in Detroit Medical Debt in two months. Learn more at
