Scholarship Fund

Several years ago, Funeral Directors Life established a Memorial Scholarship Fund to honor the memories of funeral service professionals who were so instrumental in establishing and supporting our company, while making tremendous contributions to our industry. All of these gentlemen had the vision during the early days of Funeral Directors Life to make significant professional and personal sacrifices toward achieving the ultimate mission of our company, To Be the Best, Most-Respected Provider of Service to the Funeral Industry.

The Memorial Scholarship Fund is perpetually supported by Funeral Directors Life and by the generosity of donors. Some choose to honor the memories of others with their monetary contributions.
