We are a 501 (c)(3) education and advocacy organization run by an all volunteer board.
We are not affiliated with the funeral industry or any religious groups.
We educate the public on their rights and options when planning for or purchasing funeral goods and services.
We encourage people to plan arrangements that are in keeping with their personal wishes and budget, and then share that information with their survivors.
