Eighteen of the largest independent funeral home owners in the nation commissioned a landmark funeral service study conducted by McKee, Wallwork & Co.

Passare was established as a result of the study's findings in order to meet the changing needs and preferences of today's funeral consumers.

As a tech start-up, Passare developed a robust educational consumer website along with a unique cloud-based platform for funeral professionals and families alike.

Passare launched the funeral industry's only collaboration platform to help simplify the funeral planning process.

Passare was acquired by Directors Investment Group, and under new management, the company grew its customer base by over 300% in 9 months.

The focus of Passare became "continuous improvement." Based on customer feedback, Passare began producing regular updates to the system approximately every 3 weeks.

Passare integrates with top funeral industry vendors and joins Selected Independent Funeral Homes' Preferred Partner program!

Passare releases the next generation of the Planning Center along with several new features to help funeral directors save time and enhance efficiency. 

Passare grows to serve 125k+ at-need cases per year through over 1500 funeral home locations. 

During the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, Passare offers their online Planning Center and other resources to help funeral homes help families.

Passare wins the 2021 National Funeral Directors Association’s Innovation Award for its groundbreaking integration with the electronic death registration system in Pennsylvania!
