A career at NIA benefits you, and the world!
NIA provides you the opportunity to have a great career, while making a difference.
Work that's meaningful.
Your career is a major fraction of your life. When you’re spending your week working for a for-profit company, it can be hard to shake the depressing feeling that you’re just making rich people richer.
NIA provides you with meaningful work. The passion that the NIA team brings every day empowers more than 26,000 nonprofits across the country to keep their doors open, run safely, and ultimately change the world by creating impact in the lives of real people and communities.
Enjoy remote work.
You have limited hours in your day, and personal/family commitments to meet. That’s why it’s important to work with a company that recognizes and respects work/life balance.
Having had remote workers for over 15 years, NIA knows remote work is a benefit, not a liability!
NIA supports remote work as much as possible, to create happier employees, a reduced carbon footprint, and a more diverse workforce that draws employees from different communities and geographies.
A beautiful office.
You can also work in NIA’s stunning office in Santa Cruz, California, a state-of-the-art, net-zero building with lots of natural light and fresh air, located less than a mile from the Pacific Ocean!
Committed to sustainability and equity.

Furthermore, senior management’s incentive compensation is linked to the success of their direct reports and the organization’s service goals to nonprofits.
You’re respected and appreciated.
At NIA, individuals can have an impact. When people are listened to and their ideas are taken seriously, people tend to stay.
NIA is growing year over year, which also provides room for career growth.
Many of NIA’s leadership and mid-tier leaders started in entry-level positions and have worked their way up!

Be a responsible rebel.
It’s a good thing to regularly and systematically question and address the inadequacies of existing systems which have enabled any group to gain or sustain any advantage over the other.
It is part of NIA’s makeup to develop and promote practices, policies, and culture to empower leadership and employees to enable us all to continue to evolve.
NIA disrupted an inflexible commercial insurance industry by providing insurance to nonprofits with pricing based on their individual level of risk — not on myths, misinformation, and profit-seeking at all costs. For over 30 years, NIA has reported to nonprofit stakeholders, not stockholders.
Diversity and equal opportunity.
When you are a part of a distributed team, diverse communities and geographies can work together to contribute more ideas and value.
Nonprofits Insurance Alliance was established with the premise that expanding diversity within the organization enhances the work experience and furthers the understanding of our entire mission.
An atmosphere of civility and mutual respect towards difference is indispensable to the work process and enables the free interchange of ideas that is the basis of a successful organization.
These differences may be cultural, ethnic, religious, intellectual, ideological or political. Each of these qualities is integral to the identity we form as individuals, and all are essential to creating a vibrant workforce here at Nonprofits Insurance Alliance.
NIA believes in a workforce of inclusion, respect for difference, and fairness, and guarantee the same rights to all its employees to ensure the fullest degree of success within the organization.
Nonprofits Insurance Alliance provides equal employment opportunity to all employees and applicants for employment without regard to their race, color, religious creed, sex, gender identity, gender expression, age, national origin, ancestry, citizenship status, physical or mental disability, medical condition, pregnancy, marital or veteran status, sexual orientation, height and weight, or other personal characteristics as may be protected by applicable law.
This policy applies to all terms and conditions of employment, including, without limitation, hiring, placement, promotion, layoff, termination, transfer, leaves of absence and compensation; relationships with outside vendors and customers; use of contractors and consultants; and in dealing with the general public.
U.S. nonprofits are struggling to obtain affordable risk coverage due to limited options available in the market. Mainstream carriers aren’t wanting to underwrite the risk, and legal limitations are hindering other nonprofit insurance groups from entering the market.
New York Gov. Kathy Hochul recently signed legislation which will allow out-of-state risk retention groups (RRGs) to write auto insurance coverage to NY nonprofits.
