There has been a steady increase in funeral costs year after year and the average is $7,000 to $10,000 in the United States. In October 2015, the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA) released the results of their 2014 survey, which indicated the median cost of an adult funeral with viewing and burial was $8,508. Another survey completed in 2004 indicated the median cost was $6,580, a 29.3% increase over the ten-year time span. Also, in the NFDA released results, was information that indicated the median cost of an adult funeral and cremation was $6,078. See the Breakdown of the Funeral Costs
To offset these increasing costs, crowdfunding for funeral costs and funeral fundraising is becoming the most efficient way to save time and effort while maximizing results in a short period of time. Various generic crowdfunding sites may seem like a good option but when comparing to myTribute, none of those sites were created for the sensitive nature of funeral fundraising to get help and raise money for funeral costs for when a loved one passes away.
