About Us

Passare is helping funeral professionals reimagine the funeral experience.

Company History


18 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 produced 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 Family Collaboration 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.
