Welcome to FCACO

FCACO is a non-profit organization of area residents dedicated to helping individuals understand options and costs so they can make funeral arrangements that are dignified, meaningful and affordable. Founded in 1953, Funeral Consumers Alliance of Central Ohio (formerly Memorial Society of the Columbus Area) is one of more than 110 similar groups across the country supported by the national Funeral Consumers Alliance (FCA). FCA monitors the death care industry and is run by volunteers. We have no attachment to the funeral industry or any religious group. Our membership is open to all.
