Why We’re Here

Setting Them Free was founded with the goal of helping people pay for the treatment they need to survive. If you are trying to raise funds to fight a critical illness, afford a medical procedure, or pay off hospital bills, Setting Them Free can make it all possible.

Modern medicine is very expensive, if you or someone that you know is currently receiving medical treatment of any kind, you know exactly what we’re talking about.  Even with top notch insurance, medical bills can get out of hand quickly – if you don’t have insurance, you could end up paying them for a lifetime.

Our Goal is to ensure that our patients are given every opportunity to fully enjoy the gift of life.

We understand how frightening it is to deal with a health crisis, and we also realize how difficult it is to ask for help. That’s why we make each patient a top priority, offering fundraising assistance and guidance to make the process a little easier.

Why Use Setting Them Free?

We believe in the goodness of the human family. When others are in distress, people respond generously to help those in need. Unfortunately, when it comes to paying your medical bills, being able to write a check is the most important thing. Why is fundraising with a non-profit so critical to you? This tax exempt status means that the donations to Setting Them Free is for our patients medical needs. The money is not taxed as income to the patient – but that isn’t all! This also means that the people donating can use their donations as a tax write-off!

Another important reason to use Setting Them Free is that after administrative and transaction fees, about 93% of the money goes directly to pay patients’ medical bills which is AMAZING considering that some of the larger charities pass on less than 40% of the donations they receive. We at Setting Them Free pledge to always put our patients’ needs first.
