NIA is a group of nonprofit insurance carriers who collectively provide needed insurance coverage to more than 25,000 nonprofit organizations — of all sizes and missions.
Are You an Experienced Underwriter?
If you’ve had experience working for a commercial insurance carrier, you’ve seen first-hand how business practices designed to maximize profits and satisfy stockholders can negatively impact your most vulnerable clients.
With NIA, you’ll be encouraged to use your skill and experience to expertly evaluate the risk posed by each organization and figure out how to offer them the coverage they need for their work in their communities.

Underwriting is “A Much Different Experience…”
It is refreshing that our underwriting goals are in alignment with the nonprofits we serve.”
— Brian Scheer, Underwriting Manager
‘How can we find a way to provide coverage for this nonprofit?’ — I must admit, I had never asked myself that question in my prior life.
At NIA, we try to do what’s best for the nonprofit, rather than ask how much premium we can charge.
It has been quite the mind shift since I started here, but it has also been a fulfilling experience where, at the end of the day, I feel like I have made a difference to those who really need it.”
— Simone Brewster, Underwriting Manager
I’m New — What Does an Underwriter Do?
NIA underwriters work closely with brokers across the country, guiding them through each step of the process to secure the insurance their nonprofit clients need to serve their communities.
As an underwriter, your eagle eyes will look at all aspects of a nonprofit organization — its staff, its mission, its budget, its policies, its property, and even its location — as you work to evaluate their unique insurance exposures and help determine premiums and customized coverages that are designed to fit.
