Why should I choose CalNonprofits Insurance Services?

We are unique in the insurance marketplace because we are nonprofit owned. We are here to serve the needs of nonprofits. It's all we do.

Will I save money on my insurance?

Our staff has deep experience and knowledge about nonprofits and they are here to help you navigate the insurance process by providing you with a free insurance analysis. We could save you money by finding comparable (and often better) coverages at lower rates using our thorough knowledge of the insurance market. Our job is to help you make the best purchasing decision tailored to your unique situation. We do not charge broker fees (unless you request a fee in lieu of commission) and many profit-driven brokers add 10% or more to your bill.

Will I get access to exclusive benefits or programs?

Big time. CalNonprofits Insurance carries out an array of exclusive insurance programs designed to meet the needs of California nonprofits; we even provide you with a complimentary membership to the Mineral HR Compliance platform! By leveraging the buying power of hundreds of nonprofits in California, we often can offer plans that offer greater benefits and special provisions at lower rates. Our exclusive programs include offerings for Employee Benefits, Property & Casualty, and Workers’ Compensation coverages. These CalNonprofits Insurance-only exclusives are in addition to the many other options available through us.

Will I get the same quality service and attention I get from a local broker?

Absolutely, and more! In fact, you’ll receive more valuable service and personal attention than you get from most local brokers. Excellent service is our mission and we take pride in delivering the most up-to-date information, accurate assessments, and prompt responses. We treat every client the way most brokers treat only their largest customers. Combine our service with the range of superior products we offer and you’ll understand why more than 95% of our clients renew their policies with us year after year! Our customer service team members are located all over the state so we are likely local to you!

So, what makes CalNonprofits Insurance different from other brokers and insurance providers?

Unlike other insurance agencies/brokerages, we are nonprofit owned. CalNonprofits Insurance Services is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the California Association of Nonprofits (CalNonprofits). This relationship demands that we put your needs first, above generating profits. In fact, the revenue generated through CNIS supports the work of CalNonprofits, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit association whose mission is to work to bring the full power of California’s nonprofits to strengthening communities.
