Your Broker Services Team

The dedicated, responsive team brokers expect.

When you’re partnering with an insurance provider to find the best coverages for your nonprofit clients, you expect quick turnaround and a dedicated, responsive team. You expect knowledgeable underwriters, with the expertise to answer any concerns regarding your clients’ unique operations.

And above all else, you expect policies that are meticulously crafted to the specialized needs of your clients, so that they continue to renew.

If these aren’t your expectations, Nonprofits Insurance Alliance® (NIA) is prepared to raise them. Your Broker Services team is available to answer any questions about NIA:

  • Products, programs, and services
  • How NIA operates
  • Your designated Underwriting team
  • Any inquiries you may have about NIA’s coverages and the wider nonprofit sector.

Whether you’ve had little experience with nonprofits or have worked with the 501(c)(3) sector for years, NIA is here to simplify the process.

Your Liaison with Underwriting

NIA formed at a time of crisis when commercial insurers routinely denied coverage to nonprofits, and NIA continues to cover 501(c)(3) organizations that commercial insurers are inclined to deny.

For those organizations and for all NIA members, the Broker Services team ensures that your experience with the Underwriting team meets and exceeds your expectations.

What You’ve Told NIA

NIA is the first and only 501(c)(3) organization to provide property and liability insurance exclusively to 501(c)(3) nonprofits.

In addition to a high rate of renewal (95 percent in 2022), NIA has been known among insurance agencies to provide outstanding service to all brokers with whom it does business.

NIA knows first-hand that serving the nonprofit sector is an invaluable experience, and works to assist partners finding policies that help their nonprofit clients continue their essential work and renew again, year after year.

NIA’s Commitment

For decades, NIA has insured nonprofits, and provided marketing programs to connect brokers to their nonprofit clients.

NIA is here to address all of the questions and concerns that arise during the processes of submitting, revising, and renewing applications.
