CalNonprofits Insurance Services is aligned with humanity and not just corporate profits – we care about what is important to our nonprofits, and we are not comfortable being silent or neutral. We stand together as a company with our staff, clients, and the world to call for change and the end of racism now.   

Our core values are rooted in diversity and inclusion. We believe that emotional, physical, economic, and psychological safety are essential  to thrive. We must step out of our comfort zone, look at our own implicit biases and processes, and take action to shine a light on the injustice, oppression, and systemic racism faced by our own staff and all BIPOC communities.  

While we are horrified by the recent tragic deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor,  Ahmaud Arbery, Elijah McClain, and Tony McDade, the list of people that have been murdered in this country due to the color of their skin is enormous and cannot continue. We raise our voices in protest and support for the Black Lives Matter movement and all other anti-racism and social justice organizations. 

CalNonprofits Insurance Services has been having deep  internal  conversations about injustice and oppression. We created a safe and inclusive space for staff to listen, learn, converse, and share about racism and social injustice. We have encouraged staff to use their paid volunteer hours so they can work with local organizations. We created an employee donation matching program to compound the benefits of individual donors to social justice causes (many of whom are clients).  Meaningful change to institutional racism begins at the local level so we encourage everyone to vote for the changes needed in our city, county, state elections – while still participating at the federal level elections too. 

We recognize and support the work being done by our incredible and dedicated clients.  We will continue to support your missions and remain an active force for change with you.  We are committed to active work toward change as individuals and as an organization now and in the future.  

About the Author

  • Founded in 1984 as a subsidiary of the California Association of Nonprofits (CalNonprofits), CalNonprofits Insurance Services was established during a time of diminishing insurance options for nonprofits. 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 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 1,200 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.
