Why a nonprofit specialist?
It’s important to work with a company that specializes in Nonprofit Insurance - much like a family doctor who completes an EKG on a patient complaining of chest pain only to discover the signs of a heart attack — his family doctor would immediately make arrangements to have him transported to the emergency room and for follow-up treatment to a heart disease specialist.
So too is the need for organizations to only use agencies that specialize in insuring nonprofit organizations.

Frequently Asked D&O Questions
Too many conversations about Non Profit Directors and Officers Insurance deal directly with complex coverage issues – fundamental questions may be overlooked. Here’s an opportunity to get answers to some of those basic questions...
Why do i need this coverage?
Non Profit Directors and Officers are legally responsible for the day-to-day decision-making of their organization.
Corporate responsibility applies to Nonprofits just as it does to For Profit organizations. Whether publicly traded, privately held, or nonprofit, Directors and Officers can be held personally liable for any breach of duty. The products I offer are tailored to safeguard against the exposures Non Profit Directors and Officers face.
What can I losE?
A board member’s personal assets may be at stake in a claim: Retirement savings, investments, a home – even one held in a spouse’s name – could be at risk. Nonprofit Directors and Officers Insurance can protect an individual director or officer’s personal possessions against high-priced litigation and settlements.
What could i be sued for?
Ever have to fire someone? Organizations are now more likely to be sued for discrimination, harassment, or wrongful termination than to suffer a general liability or property loss. In addition, Directors and Officers must always act for the benefit of their organization, avoid any conflicts of interest, and exercise the utmost skill and care in decision-making. Any perceived breach of these duties can result in a suit that will at the very least incur defense costs. Many of our D&O products offer separate limits of liability for Directors and Officers and Employment Practices Liability claims as well as defense costs outside the limit of liability.
Who is going to sue me?
Employees, members, volunteers and donors. These are just a few of the parties who may bring suit against a Nonprofit Organization. Even if a director or officer hasn’t done anything wrong, lawsuits must still be answered and defense can be costly. Nearly 85% of Nonprofits have an annual budget that is less than the average cost to defend a claim closed through litigation. Can a small organization afford to defend itself and indemnify its leadership without Nonprofit Directors and Officers Insurance?
COuld this really happen to me?
It may only take one suit to shut down a Nonprofit Organization forever. In today’s litigious society, defense costs alone can cripple even the most financially stable entity. With the confidence and security of a Nonprofit Directors and Officers policy in place, an organization can concentrate on its mission.
