Oregon Memorial Association
Affiliate of Funeral Consumers Alliance
Oregon Memorial Association (OMA) is an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to
helping consumers find dignified, meaningful and affordable end-of-life services. We help individuals and families
avoid the confusion and sales pressure often associated with funeral arrangements. A low one-time membership fee
entitles you to discounted prices at our contracted funeral homes and mortuaries.
Oregon Memorial Association is affiliated with
the Funeral Consumers Alliance,
a national organization representing state level groups. We have no ties to the funeral industry except for
organizations listed as “Mortuaries” who have agreed to provide our members with reasonably priced arrangements.
OMA provides free educational materials, brochures and information about funeral choices and is
available to make brief presentations at meetings or to provide full length workshops on end-of-life planning.
We welcome opportunities to provide speakers at small or large groups
(churches, civic groups, retirement homes, hospice, etc.) increasing public awareness of funeral options.
Our Speakers Bureau will send a representative to make a presentation and answer questions. Contact:
Our membership is open to residents of Oregon. (Washington state is served by
Peoples Memorial Association.)
