2008, Funeral Consumers Alliance of the
Piedmont is one of the newest of about
100 Funeral Consumers Alliance chapters
across the United States. We are a
grassroots, all volunteer, 501(c)(3)
nonprofit focused on funeral consumer
education and advocacy. Our mission is
"to work together as informed consumers
for after-death arrangements that
embrace our needs, preferences and
rights." If you think of us as sort of
all-volunteer-staffed Consumer Reports
focused entirely on the local funeral
industry, you have a pretty good sense
of who we are!
day-to-day work, we field telephone
inquiries from consumers, social
workers, the news media and others. We
host workshops and other events to
educate funeral consumers. We advocate
for families in the N.C. General
Assembly. We provide speakers on
consumer matters to area groups and
invite you to join us!
are a volunteer organization
organized to assist our members
and the public with issues of

your organization might be
interested in a presentation about
the funeral industry in general
and the work of our organization
