CalNonprofits Insurance Services (CNIS) was founded in 1984 as a subsidiary of the California Association of Nonprofits. CalNonprofits Insurance Services was established during a time of diminishing insurance options for nonprofits, and one of the driving reasons for establishing the association was to use the collective influence of the sector to secure more stable and quality insurance. We have developed, and are known for, our wide spectrum of services reflecting an expertise in both the insurance and nonprofit sectors, our superior customer service, and our development of exclusive insurance products, including a highly successful dental and vision trust. We insure more than 1,000 nonprofit organizations throughout California and we are the only California brokerage specializing in insurance for nonprofits. Our clients range from newly established nonprofits all the way to venerable organizations with multiple locations statewide.
The California Association of Nonprofits (CalNonprofits) is a statewide alliance of more than 10,000 nonprofits that serves as the voice of the nonprofit community to government, funders, and the public at large. Programs you may be interested in:
