Insurance for Nonprofits - Foundation Center
Thursday, June 27, 10:30am-12:00pm

Insurance seems like a black hole to many nonprofits. There isn’t a clear guide as to what is needed, how much is needed, and where to get it. In addition, it seems like just another cost that’s especially difficult to afford on a tight budget. During this presentation, our speaker brings light to the subject and helps nonprofits understand: what different types of insurance are appropriate for nonprofits, what the different types of insurance actually cover, how to find a good insurance broker, and the pros and cons of various types of insurance. Workshop is FREE. Details and registration.
