Innovation and efficiency in the 21st Century

Looking at risk holistically we have helped the nonprofit sector parse the many layers of risk – both human capital and assets overall. In fact, we have many nonprofits looking to consolidate these otherwise separate efforts (property & casualty and workers comp) and health & welfare benefits consulting as one enterprise undertaking.

We work with more than 24,000 nonprofits around the globe – small to large – bringing insights and expertise that sustain and protect their missions. We serve:

  • the broader 501 c 3 agencies who do good in society
  • social service organizations including residential agencies, handicapped facilities, homeless shelters, foodbanks
  • non-governmental organizations (NGOs)

From executive benefits, multinational benefits and hr, pharmacy and voluntary benefits, we work with you to design programs to align with your goals.
  3. Insurance and Risk Management. Our team evaluates your nonprofit’s total cost of risk using CORE360™ approach and the data and analytics tools to provide additional insights from benchmarking tools to placements. Our team will leverage alternative risk financing including captives to manage your exposures and lower your cost. We review your current coverages and your goals to see if your risk is properly balanced and gaps are reduced.

Business Continuity + Nonprofit Boards and Executive Teams

Nonprofit boards and executive teams ultimately work to protect the nonprofit’s reputation and assets and while also looking to maintain sustainability long terms. As your strategic partner, we look beyond coverage and limits, but through the lens of business continuity management and enterprise risk management. We employ various processes, including our Riskmap process that engages your key stakeholders in identifying your strengths and weakness and means to building strategic plans. Strategic plans include analysis of the following areas:

Assets – A nonprofits endowments and physical assets are core to a nonprofit. Often overlooked is the reputation. Reputation risk can be challenge to insure and we take a closer look at your nonprofits reputation risk through the enterprise risk management process.

Exposure – This critical evaluation examines the mission and the risk-reward analysis to uncover gaps and exposed areas of liability. Understanding your nonprofit’s mission and the stakeholders you serve are critical to taking on and avoiding certain risks. Nonprofits help society solve many challenges and these opportunities require proven risk management programs in place to protect the nonprofit and its reputation long term.

Jurisdiction – With states exercising control over prior protections, such as charitable immunity and statute of limitations, we will analyze your jurisdiction’s history and track record of verdicts as part of your overall strategy.

Limits as targets - We look at limits both as potential targets for litigators and well as strategies to protect the assets of the organization. While limits can protect your assets, they may be discoverable for litigation which could be devastating if a full limit is triggered.

Duty of care – We see this as the most critical discussion between board and staff leaders. Being prepared and knowing your risks is in this era of transparency and accountability is a mandate in today’s world. “Just Google It” makes it impossible not to know. We help you make informed decisions daily, knowing the risks and rewards, thus allowing you to align mitigation with insurance, risk management and operational best practices.

By providing business continuity evaluations, you establish reasonable precaution and worries of appropriate limits subside while protecting your nonprofit and board’s personal assets.
