GrantWorks Giving Back
GrantWorks contributions eliminated over $4 Million of medical debt for residents of our client cities and counties. These funds were donated to a non-profit organization whose mission is to relieve families from oppressive medical debt. The map shows the areas where our assistance benefited families with severe medical debts that negatively impact their credit. Once the debt is eliminated, the nonprofit also assists individuals in having this debt removed from their credit report.
Comments from beneficiaries:
William: “I wish to express my heartfelt thank you for this gift. Having been in the hospital 3 times in the last 12 months, I still have thousands in co-pays remaining. With high costs for medicine, it has been difficult to pay all of my medical bills. Than you so very much.”
Sonya: “My $15,913 bill was paid off. I started crying. I couldn’t do anything about if before and thought I would never pay it off. I want to pay it forward- if I can give $10 or $20, anyone can.”
Marie: “I wanted to thank you for the assistance with my outstanding debt. I was going through a very difficult time and had just lost my husband to cancer. Taking care of him had been my sole job for a long time…thank you again for your help, it is very much appreciated.”
Philip: “Anytime I went to the mailbox, it was this feeling of trepidation, ‘Oh no it’s going to be another bill. When I opened this up, I thought it might be one of those consolidation notices. So when I read what it actually said, it was amazing. It lifted a huge weight off. Thank you!”
