Nonprofits Insurance Alliance of California demonstrates nonprofits can successfully insure themselves

SANTA CRUZ, CA, April 23, 2019–Nonprofits Insurance Alliance of California (NIAC) has declared a $3 million dividend in 2019. NIAC will issue the dividend to its qualifying member-insured 501(c)(3) nonprofits renewing their policies from June 1, 2019, to May 31, 2020.

NIAC, a nonprofit insurance risk pool, is a member of the Nonprofits Insurance Alliance (NIA) and was the first risk pool to address the liability insurance crisis of the 1980s, when commercial insurers refused to cover nonprofit organizations. NIAC and other member companies of NIA are 501(c)(3) nonprofits and insure only 501(c)(3) nonprofits. As an integral part of the nonprofit sector, NIAC returns dividends to nonprofits as part of its mission.

NIAC’s dividend plan issues funds to members based on individual member premiums paid during the dividend period, length of continuous coverage, and favorable claims experience, which NIA’s risk management services help members to create. Since 2007, NIAC has returned a total of $44.1 million in dividends to the nonprofit sector.About Nonprofits Insurance Alliance:
