First make sure you research on what coverage you are expecting as a nonprofit organization. Bear in mind that you have limited funds and you need a plan that will work out in a long term setting while minimizing losses.

Your insurance provider should provide extensive cover for liabilities such as:
Secondly Ensure that your insurance provider offers an all under one umbrella services that include insurance products, risk management catalogues and free support services like ,safety training, crisis management kits, basic first aid training and free risk analysis.

Forget that inadequate insurance that gives you limited cover it exposes you to risks that might contribute to the down fall of your organization.
An insurance for nonprofits that provides training services for your employees, members and volunteers might seem expensive but it will equip your team with skills that in the long run will save you a lot of law suits and money. You end up saving the money that you would have used in hiring professionals to provide training services. For those whose nonprofit organization helps more than one cause can merge the causes by having the insurance provider cover both cause but cover them as one organization. For example if your organization deals with abused women and teenage pregnancy have them registered under one wide policy.
