Why choose CalNonprofits Insurance Services (CIS)?
As California’s leading nonprofit insurance specialist, many nonprofit agencies select us for our access to quality coverages, unbeatable rates and attentive, professional service. Others appreciate our service and commitment of over 30 years of specializing in insurance products exclusively for nonprofit organizations.
Can CIS save my agency money on our insurance?
Yes. Our expert staff is here to help you navigate the insurance process by providing you with a free insurance analysis. We save you money by finding comparable (and often better) coverages at lower rates using our thorough knowledge of the insurance market. We can also help you save money by re-assessing your risks, re-classifying employees or eliminating unnecessary coverages sold by profit-driven brokers.
Does CIS offer any “exclusive” insurance programs?
CIS offers an array of exclusive insurance programs tailored to meet the needs of California nonprofits. By leveraging the buying power of hundreds of nonprofits, we can often offer plans with greater benefits and special provisions at lower rates. Our exclusive programs include offerings for Employee Benefits, Property & Casualty, and Workers’ Compensation coverages. These CIS-only exclusives are in addition to the many other options available through us.
Will I get the same quality service and attention I can get from a local broker?
Absolutely, and more! In fact, you’ll receive more valuable service and personal attention than you get from most local brokers. Excellent service is our mission and we take pride in delivering the most up-to-date information, accurate assessments and prompt responses. Unlike many brokerages whose number of sales staff far exceeds the number of service staff, our ratio of service to sales is 5 service staff for every 1 sales person. A dedicated Account Manager is always here to assist you and manage your multiple vendors and their unique rules and guidelines. We treat every client the way most brokers treat only their largest customers. Combine our service with the range of superior products we offer and you’ll understand why more than 95% of our clients renew their policies with us year after year!
What makes CIS different from other brokers and insurance providers?
Unlike other insurance agencies, CIS is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the California Association of Nonprofits (CalNonprofits). This relationship demands that we put your needs first, above generating profits. In fact, the revenue generated through CIS supports the work of CalNonprofits, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit association whose mission is to work to bring the full power of California’s nonprofits to strengthening communities. Since 1984, CIS has provided cost saving insurance plans to thousands of California nonprofits.
