To become a volunteer we ask that you FIRST complete your own funeral plans & share them with your next-of-kin. 
THEN let us know how you'd like to be involved.
Some ideas:


  • Tell your church, class or club that FCA gives fast-paced 20 minute presentations followed by discussion. We can share the script ahead of time.

  • Recommend our website to Preparedness groups, DIY clubs, Hospice, Social workers and College Professors.

  • Ask your local hospital administrators what their protocol is for release of the dead and send us a copy of it. Please!!!!

  • Attend or listen to the recording of the quarterly Funeral Licensing Board meetings at 160 E 300 S SLC, see schedule

  • Conduct a survey of prices and rules of cemeteries in whatever section of the state you like.

  • Call your County Health department (Vital Records office) to ask if their data entry fees for Dispositioners are a high fee or prorated to "actual time spent". Let us know.

  • Start a Home Funeral Committee in your community.

  • Plan to perform a Do-it-yourself funeral for the next death in the family.

  • Join our email list (or facebook page) to keep up with Utah funeral consumer news and calls to action.

  • File a complaint if you have been taken advantage of, manipulated or lied to by a funeral or cemetery provider (after direct negotiations have proven fruitless).

  • Assist with an investigation of Intermountain Donor Service's (IDS) in relation to reimbursement of mortuaries who appear to be charging families for extra care of donor bodies. IDS pays for any costs of donating an organ, including any additional body prep resulting from donation of organs. So don't let a funeral home charge you for that!

  • Ask your local hospital to refer survivors to our website.
