About CalNonprofits Insurance Services

CalNonprofits Insurance Services (CNIS) was founded in 1984 as a social enterprise of the California Association of Nonprofits (CalNonprofits). Unlike other insurance brokers, our profits go directly to our parent nonprofit, to further advocacy work on behalf of California's nonprofit sector. CalNonprofits Insurance Services is NONPROFIT owned and women led. We fill a unique position within the insurance industry.
