Why Non-profits Need Adequate Business Insurance
There is frequently good natured kidding between CEOs of for-profit and non-profit organizations. It usually has something to do with how nice it must be to operate an organization that doesn’t have to worry about making a profit. As any non-profit CEO will tell you, it’s not quite that simple.
A non-profit CEO still has a board of directors to report to, employees to manage and bills to pay. Non-profit organizations frequently own property, furniture, office equipment and are exposed to liability risks. This makes them very similar to a for-profit organization, especially when it comes to business insurance.
Keep in mind, there are some very large institutions that may be considered non-profits. They can include schools and universities, hospitals and clinics. They include religious organizations that may own church buildings and other assets like schools, daycare centers and even radio stations. There may be large non-profit organizations created to operate sports teams, leagues and even ballparks. All of these can be subject to the same risks as a for-profit company. Even board members of a non-profit may be legally held responsible for the actions of a group, including its employees and volunteers.
