Funeral Consumers Information Society, also known as FCIS, is a volunteer-run nonprofit that has been dedicated to helping Michiganians make dignified, meaningful and affordable funeral arrangements since 1961.
In 2006, our mission expanded to advocate for the re-establishment of family rights in after-death care, including family-led home funerals, and to foster sustainable environmental practices, such as green burial, in the state.
Funeral Consumers Information Society of Michigan is a local non-profit organization that is part of the national Funeral Consumers Alliance. Based in Detroit, Michigan, Funeral Consumers Information Society of Michigan 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.
