When running not for profit organizations, it is essential to have the right coverage to protect your directors and officers. D&O is explicitly designed to provide protection against personal liability associated with wrongful acts committed while carrying out their duties. If you’re one of the following types of organization, we highly recommend D&O insurance:
  • Charitable organization
  • Religious organization
  • Tax exempt organizations
While it is essential to know that policies vary by your insurance carrier, some specific things covered by your nonprofit D&O include financial claims based on the decisions of your director and officers like misuse of nonprofit funds, breach of fiduciary duty, failure to comply with workplace laws, and a lack of board policies.
It is important to note that D&O insurance does not cover everything. Generally, directors and officers are still liable for intentional or fraudulent acts, as well as activities or violations of securities laws.
In addition to protecting directors and officers from personal liability, directors and officers liability insurance can also help cover the costs of legal fees and settlements arising from lawsuits. This can help minimize the financial impact of defense costs on nonprofit organizations and free up resources to be used for other purposes.

The amount of directors and officers liability insurance that a nonprofit needs will vary depending on the organization's size, structure, and the types of risks it faces. However, we recommend that nonprofits purchase at least $1-2 million in coverage to provide adequate protection.

Be Prepared For Any Scenario.

Directors and Officers liability insurance claims can be complex and expensive to defend; that could result in a loss of tax-exempt status. Protect your organization with the right coverage, so you can focus on serving your community.
