Funeral Consumers Alliance

About Us

Funeral Consumer Alliance of the Fox Valley is a non-profit organization of area residents dedicated to helping our neighbors make funeral arrangements that are dignified, meaningful and affordable.

We achieve this goal through consumer-education outreach, including group presentations, printed materials, personal consultations, local price surveys and membership benefits. We serve residents within a 100-mile radius of Appleton.

Founded in 2001, the FCAFV is one of more than 120 similar groups across the country, affiliated with the national Funeral Consumer Alliance ( We are run solely by volunteers, and 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 experience, and we would like to share our knowledge with you.
