|Funeral Advice You Can Trust
Funeral Consumers Alliance of Maine (FCAM) is a non-profit, all volunteer, educational organization dedicated to helping members make informed decisions about after-death arrangements that are dignified, meaningful, and affordable.
We achieve this goal through consumer education and outreach, including group presentations by informed speakers, printed materials (the Winter 2013 Newsletter is just out), Maine price surveys, information about Maine funeral laws (check out the latest legislation!), and coordination with our parent national organization (learn more about the next annual meeting). Members are strongly encouraged to discuss after-death preferences with family, friends and/or trusted advisors.
Founded in 1973, FCAM is one of more than 100 similar groups across the country, supported by the national Funeral Consumers Alliance (www.funerals.org). We have no connection to the funeral industry or any religious group.
Simply put, we are a group of people who have learned about planning funerals through personal experience and are happy to share our knowledge with you. Would you like to arrange for a speaker? Just send us an email with the details and we'll get back in touch with you.
