Why as a charity do you need insurance?
We understand that charities and nonprofit organisations play an important role in the lives of many, and as Channel Islanders we are generous in not only our financial support but within our time spent as volunteers too. We appreciate that the main focus of the charity is fundraising to support your cause, therefore your insurance needs to come at a reasonable cost, which is why we offer tailored insurance policies that can cover your charity’s needs.
We do also appreciate that an incident, even on the lower end of the scale, could seriously impact the charity, the people involved and the future of the charity itself. Our professional team here at Islands would be delighted to assist you in placing a policy that protects the long term future of the charity.
Covers & benefits provided
Islands Insurance has a long history of supporting charities with bespoke insurance provided to meet your needs, including:
Whether you are a trustee, director, officer or committee member of a charity you can be held personally responsible for making decisions on the charity’s behalf. Ensure you have the appropriate cover in place for your role.
Whether it’s a slip or trip at your charity’s premises, or damage to property whilst you’re hosting or attending a fundraising event, you may be held liable. Ensure your legal fees and compensation costs are covered.
Even with the detailed consideration to Health & Safety, accidents will happen. As a charity, you may have full-time staff members but also more than likely a number of volunteers. Ensure they are also covered whilst undertaking roles for the charity.
Most charities are likely to hold personal data obtained throughout their fundraising efforts. If you’re not careful, and this data finds its way into the public domain, you could be at risk for a severe data breach which could seriously harm the charity and its philanthropic efforts.
You may own your own premises, computers, contents and even stock, depending on the size and nature of the charity. These are likely to be at significant cost to the charity, so it’s important to make sure your outlay is adequately insured and covers buildings you operate or own and the property within.
Your policy will generally cover you for a number of insured events, such as:
- Malicious Damage
- Accidental Damage
