Nonprofit organizations are a mainstay of our society. Mental & Allied Health professionals of all kinds run charitable work – but may not realize that even volunteer work requires insurance coverage. Nonprofit board members specifically are not aware that they may be held personally liable for the actions of the organization.

The duties of directors and officers are performance related, and can protect against employment practice issues. Some types of claims can include;

  • Donors – Donor claims are claims resulting from those who make donations to the organization.
  • Government Organizations – Law violations claims
  • Third Parties – These can include various lawsuits such as intellectual property and copyright issues.
  • Employees & Volunteers – Discrimination, harassment, wrongful termination, etc.
  • Members – Claims made to protect the interests of the members.
  • Beneficiaries/clients – Recipients of the organization’s services may file claims against the organization.

Directors and Officers Insurance acts as a layer of protection, offering volunteer board members security and peace of mind in all their nonprofit ventures.

  1. Directors & Officers Liability
