Insurance Program Oversight

Insurance is a popular and often effective form of risk-financing, and insurance program oversight is a key responsibility often fulfilled by a nonprofit’s internal Risk Champions or risk management team. The Nonprofit Risk Management Center team offers the following services and resources to support effective insurance program oversight in the nonprofit sector.


Consulting: Broker Selection Processes & Insurance Coverage Reviews

Learn more about our Insurance Broker Selection Process, a project we conduct when a nonprofit client wishes to validate its relationship with its current insurance broker, or explore other available brokerage services that could better suit the nonprofit’s mission. Our staff serve as facilitators throughout this important process, in order to:

  • assure our clients that the selection process is carried out fairly and provides an independent perspective
  • empower our clients to participate in the broker selection while learning more about their broker and coverage options.

We also offer Insurance Coverage Reviews in conjunction with a Risk Assessment or an Enterprise Risk Assessment. Our Insurance Coverage Reviews provide an independent opinion of the adequacy of your insurance coverage, based on the specific risks that your nonprofit faces. Our team reviews policies including D&O, Cyber/Privacy, CGL, WC, BOP, and more. During an Insurance Coverage Review, our team reads your policies line-by-line to identify any coverage gaps or inadequacies, and we deliver specific recommendations designed to strengthen your specific coverages and your insurance program as a whole.
