In 2023, the Rotary Club of Wake Forest continued its impactful mission by successfully erasing the past-due medical debt of 26 members within the Wake Forest community who were grappling with financial challenges related to cancer treatments. This compassionate initiative builds upon the Club’s previous achievement in 2020 when $169,000.00 of past-due medical debt for residents was eliminated.


Benefits of the “Wake Forest Medical Debt Relief” initiative:

  • Alleviating Financial Stress: By paying off past-due medical debt, the Rotary Club provides crucial relief to individuals and families, allowing them to focus on their physical and emotional well-being without high medical bills.
  • Improving Credit Scores: The initiative improves credit scores, enabling individuals to have better access to loans, credit cards, and other essential financial services in the future.
  • Boosting the Local Economy: Freed from the weight of high medical bills, individuals and families are more likely to invest in other goods and services, thereby contributing to the overall economic vitality of the local community.
  • Demonstrating Community Support: The Rotary Club of Wake Forest’s ongoing commitment reflects the community’s dedication to the well-being of its residents, showcasing proactive efforts to provide support when needed most.

The far-reaching benefits of this initiative underscore the positive impact that can be achieved by rallying together to support those in need.
