20 Years of Independent Funeral Directors of Georgia

IFDG feels we have assimilated a like minded organization that promotes, supports, strengthens & encourages independently owned funeral homes across Georgia. We work daily to strengthen the funeral service industry as a whole. Our goal is to improve service through continuing education training & promote legislation for the benefit of the funeral service industry & the public it serves. 

By joining IFDG, your membership allows us to provide you & your firm with strong & effective representation in our state. We diligently work to educate our representatives & our members about the needs of the funeral service industry & the independently owned funeral homes. IFDG Board of Directors & staff work closely with state & federal agencies to keep you updated on the latest news from each.  

IFDG believes your opinion matters. We strongly encourage & value the input & opinions of our members. IFDG Membership allows your firm the benefit of receiving substantial discounts from our Cooperative Buying Program Participating providers. We provide timely, pertinent & informative programs at each of our training meetings held throughout the year. 

Part of IFDG's strongest attributes are the enduring friendships formed over the years among our members through the extensive networks gained in the association & with others in the funeral service industry across Georgia & nationally. These allow our members to have support & open communication about the opportunities in each of the markets. IFDG members not only benefit from each other, we enhance the families whom we serve daily. IFDG is thankful for our each of our members, our vendor friends & we always welcome new members! 

We hope you will take a moment to browse our site & join us at an upcoming event soon!
