Christ Episcopal Church of Dayton is partnering with Undue Medical Debt in an effort to Become Good Soil, by eliminating medical debt in Montgomery County during this Easter Season. This effort makes a big difference in the lives of families who are struggling because of outstanding medical debt. Like the Parable of the Soils, we have a chance to bear fruit of one hundred to one! Yes, that’s right, each dollar donated will abolish one hundred dollars in medical debt! Together we’re giving individuals and families that are struggling a fresh start, allowing them to continue to seek medical care, and helping them along the path to financial stability.

Here’s how it works:

  • Make a donation
  • Through our partnership with Undue Medical Debt (a 501c3 non-profit) your gifts are used to relieve $1 to $100 worth of debt
  • Undue uses data analytics to identify those most in need: households at or below 4 times the federal poverty level, and those whose debt is 5% or more of their annual income
  • These households are then notified that their debt has been forgiven, tax-free via letters in the mail

We Become Good Soil!

What a wonderful way to offer our neighbors new life! Medical debt is the #1 cause of personal bankruptcy. We have the chance to hear this good word and embrace it, to Become Good Soil. To participate in a harvest which allows folks to remove debt from their credit report and regain financial footing. To stop simply trying to survive and begin to flourish!

Undue Medical Debt has access to approximately $1.5 million in medical debt in Montgomery County available for relief. Consider joining us in this campaign to eliminate all of it for only $15,000! Together, during this Easter season, we can offer new life to those burdened by crippling debt, if we only have the ears to listen – we can Become Good Soil!
