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.

OurCore Values


We strive for excellence in all we do. Our customer service is tailored to each client and our service teams are vested in your mission. We will be responsive to your needs, not just because we value your business, but because we truly want your nonprofit to thrive.


We endeavor to develop great relationships with our co-workers, clients, carriers, and community. We can learn something every day if we keep our minds open and are receptive to new and different ideas.

Our values reflect those of the nonprofits we serve - diverse and inclusive. We serve all nonprofits and we do our best to reflect that diversity in our staff and our programs. We are committed to equity and inclusion in the workplace as well as in the community.


We respect the courage, vision and dedication it takes to run a nonprofit. We respect the decisions and sacrifices that you make on a daily basis and we will always seek ways to help you succeed. We respect that each group is unique and has their own needs and values. We treat all our co-workers, clients, carriers and community members with respect and caring.
