Welcome to the Funeral Consumers Alliance of Greater Milwaukee,
serving Southeastern Wisconsin and surrounding communities.
WHO WE ARE. . .
The Funeral Consumers Alliance is a non-profit organization of area residents dedicated to helping our neighbors plan arrangements for funerals that are dignified, meaningful and affordable.
We accomplish this goal through consumer education outreach, including printed materials, group presentations, personal consultations, local price surveys and membership benefits.
Founded in 1978, the FCA of Greater Milwaukee is one of nearly 100 similar groups across the country supported by the national Funeral Consumers Alliance (www.funerals.org).
We are run solely by volunteers, and we have no attachment to the funeral industry or any religious group.
Our membership is open to all.
Simply put, we are a group of people who have learned about planning funerals through personal experiences, and we would like to share our knowledge with you.
