We understand nonprofits because that is ALL we do. CalNonprofits Insurance Services is a social enterprise subsidiary of the California Association of Nonprofits (CalNonprofits). Revenue generated through CalNonprofits Insurance Services stays in the nonprofit sector and strengthens the nonprofit community.

In 1984, CalNonprofits started CalNonprofits Insurance Services so that we could provide exclusive and cost-saving insurance products – including medical, dental, liability, workers’ compensation, directors & officers, and more – to our members.

Our mission is to provide quality insurance products, excellent customer service, and education tailored to meet the needs of California nonprofits. Today, more than 1,300 California nonprofits choose CalNonprofits Insurance Services as their insurance broker because we have excellent customer service, access to all the major carriers that specialize in insuring nonprofits, and exclusive programs for members.

You need to be a member of CalNonprofits to take advantage of these insurance programs, but you don’t need to be a member to find out more or to get a complimentary consultation to discuss your current insurance and what you might need. Contact CalNonprofits Insurance Services today for more information: 888-427-5222.

[CalNonprofits Insurance Services] just did a great job with our health insurance changes, and also saved us over $20k in our disability insurance." -- Abdi Soltani, Executive Director, ACLU of Northern California
