The Arizona Funeral Directors Association was formed in 1958 and the Arizona Cemetery Association was formed soon after. Both organizations have had a successful history of longevity.
Our membership is made up of Funeral Directors, owners of Funeral Home and Cemeteries, Crematories and suppliers of services and product for mortuaries and cemeteries.
The Association also has a philanthropic arm: AFCCA Foundation for Children. This association is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Its purpose is to help at risk school age children with medical/health needs. We work with school nurses, teachers and the school principals who identify children with a need. A volunteer school nurse coordinator helps in the process of determining eligibility for funds that go to the provider of the service for the children.
We are here to help with any questions or concerns you have.
