Frequently Asked Questions

Non-profit insurance coverage helps protect 501(c)(3) companies and human service organizations from a potential risk or claim that could occur during normal operations.

A non-profit is a legal entity organized and operated for a collective, public, or social benefit. This is different from a normal for-profit business that generates income for an owner.

A human service organization is a company that strives to deliver beneficial necessities to a society or group. These can include older adults, low-income, or sick people. This line of work hosts programs or facilities that meet people’s basic health, welfare, and educational requirements.

Non-profit and human service insurance coverage can protect you from accidents, oversights, or misunderstandings that may trigger liability lawsuits. It can also help non-profit and human service owners face legal issues from volunteers, donors, employees, and government regulators.

On top of risk management or liability coverage, employee health and benefits and retirement solutions for non-profit and human service organizations help you build employee benefits packages. This helps ensure the health and safety of your team and provides a positive experience.

Marsh McLennan Agency provides non-profits and human service organizations a wide range of plans, including:

  • Business income insurance
  • Commercial auto insurance
  • Commercial property insurance
  • Data breach and cyber liability insurance
  • Directors and officers insurance (D&O)
  • Employment practices liability insurance
  • General liability insurance
  • Health insurance
  • And more

These solutions can proactively protect your company from vulnerable situations or possible risks that could harm you, your employees, or your volunteers.

The importance of human service insurance coverage can’t be overstated. When a critical situation arises or a legal battle begins, your company can go through a lot. If this happens, you are subject to large costs and reputational damage. Productivity loss can also leave your organization grasping for straws.

It’s better to be safe when it comes to non-profit business operations. These organizations often have small budgets, meaning protecting their assets will save them money in the long run. These organizations should get any insurance relevant to their industry or area of work to keep things running smoothly, no matter what event or crisis may occur.

Employee health and benefits and retirement savings plans are also beneficial options for any 501(c)(3) or human service business. Having a holistic employee solution for your team will help them feel valued and may increase retention and loyalty to your organization.

If your organization is a 501(c)(3) or in the human service industry, you will benefit from insurance. This could include:

  • Alumni non-profit associations
  • Business non-profit associations
  • Charitable foundations
  • Civic non-profit associations
  • Political clubs
  • Professional non-profit associations
  • Recreation clubs
  • Trade non-profit associations
  • And more

Here is a list of common sub-industries that Marsh McLennan Agency serves:

  • Behavioral Health/Substance Use
  • Community Outreach Programs
  • Clubs
  • Community Action Programs, Food Banks

  • FQHCs
  • Goodwill, Sheltered Workshops
  • Museums and Art Galleries
  • Services for Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD)
  • Shelters and Housing
  • Sober Living
  • Youth Associations

Even a simple general liability insurance policy helps protect non-profits from injury, advertising, and property damage claims. It will also cover certain defense costs, including court prices, witness and attorney fees, and judgment or settlement money. This level of protection can help ensure that the organization doesn’t have to worry about something uncertain happening.
