Specialized coverage uniquely designed for nonprofit vehicle usage.
Brokers rely on NIA to insure the nonprofit-specific transit risks that many other carriers won’t cover — no matter if it’s transporting students, seniors, or box-trucks of food and donations.
NIA provides protection for vehicle fleets of all sizes, driven by employees or volunteers. Coverage can include personal vehicles that are being used for nonprofit work.
Note: NIA’s Commercial General Liability is required if you want to purchase this coverage.

From the Claims files:
Here are a few examples of how NIA’s Business Auto Liability and Physical Damage coverage has helped nonprofits.
A nonprofit’s employee was traveling on agency business in a car owned by the nonprofit and was rear-ended by an uninsured motorist.
A nonprofit vehicle made an unsafe lane change into a passing vehicle, which then went off the highway and crashed into a call box.
A nonprofit’s driver failed to notice a motorcycle traveling down the highway, which had no stop sign and the right of way. The motorcycle crashed and the rider was injured.
List of coverages:
Here’s the menu of NIA’s nonprofit insurance offerings.
Note: NIA’s Commercial General Liability coverage is required if you want to purchase any other coverages from NIA.
Coverage for a wide range of negligent acts which result in bodily injury, property damage, personal injury, or advertising injury. Liquor liability included at no extra fee.
Coverage for nonprofit employees, volunteers, and the organization for allegations of sexual and/or physical abuse. Event trigger and claims-made available.
Coverage for employees, volunteers, interns, students-in-training, and independent contractors for damages resulting from errors and omissions in the provision of certain professional services.
D&O, fiduciary, and employment practices (EPLI) coverage for the organization and its directors and officers, employees, and volunteers for allegations of wrongful acts. Affordable flat-rate D&O without EPLI for nonprofits without employees.
Coverage for vehicle fleets of all sizes, driven by employees or volunteers. Can include personal vehicles that are being used for nonprofit work.
Coverage for the physical assets a nonprofit owns or leases — such as buildings, office equipment, computers, furniture, etc. Generous, modified BOP, includes business income and extra expense.
Limited coverage for injury to a volunteer or participant (depending on the coverage) on a no-fault basis. May apply prior to (or in excess of) an individual’s health insurance policy.
While a $1 million limit works for most claims, umbrella liability provides the excess coverage some nonprofits may need.
