The Funeral Consumer Society of Colorado is an official affiliate of the Funeral Consumers Alliance.
FCSC MISSION STATEMENT
Our mission is to inform and educate consumers on significant end-of-life issues.
WHAT WE ARE:
Founded in 1963, the Society is a nonprofit consumer organization whose main goal is to enable its members to plan for funeral or memorial services at fair prices. The Society is open to all, regardless of age or ethnic background, and is nonsectarian. It is particularly appropriate for individuals who accept responsibility and prefer to make their own decisions concerning end-of-life choices. We provide funeral information to help you, or your survivors, make these choices. We are a force promoting consumer choice and fair dealing with the funeral industry. We are a member of the Funeral Consumers Alliance (FCA), a leading national organization advocating consumer rights regarding funerals.
WHAT WE ARE NOT:
We are not a charity nor a funeral home, nor a funeral insurance plan, nor prepayment plan. We are not affiliated with any mortuary. We do not make decisions for our members. We are not antagonistic to the entire funeral industry.
Funeral Consumer Society of Colorado is a local non-profit organization that is part of the national Funeral Consumers Alliance. Based in Denver, Colorado, Funeral Consumer Society of Colorado helps local consumers understand their funeral rights, provides unbiased advice, and can help with understanding local funeral pricing and landscape.
Many funeral consumers alliances operate with a volunteer board and conduct local price surveys.
