Across the country, millions of Americans are stuck facing daunting levels of medical debt. One in three Americans is struggling with the many challenges that medical debt brings onto individuals and families alike. This financial strain burdens people simply because they cannot afford life-saving procedures and medications. 

Good Samaritan Lutheran Church in Las Vegas has a simple mission: to Love God, Love People, and Make a difference! Recognizing the undue burden caused by medical debt and the struggle of so many families in our region, we want to make a difference in the lives of those who face a mountain of debt due to medical bills. We pray that God’s generosity will shine through us as we embark on this effort to serve our neighbors! 

This is why we are collaborating with Undue Medical Debt, a national nonprofit dedicated to abolishing medical debt for those burdened by it. Undue Medical Debt has wiped out over $10 billion in medical debt – and with your assistance, we can help many more individuals in our communities escape crippling debt.

How does it work?

When you make a donation, Undue Medical Debt uses that money to buy bundles of medical debt in bulk, allowing them to gain access to medical debt at a very large discount. Then, once they have the debt, they abolish the debt. Just like that, people are liberated from life-ruining expenditures and are free to live their lives with dignity and stability.

On average, $100 of donations is used to abolish  $10,000 in medical debt, and if we can raise a minimum of $10,000, we will be able to abolish $1,000,000 in medical debt across Nevada and Arizona.

Our Mission statement: 

Love God.

Love People.

Make a Difference!
