Protect Your Nonprofit’s Volunteers

Protect Your Nonprofit’s Volunteers

Volunteer workers are the backbone of many nonprofit organizations, and protecting them is an obligation because without their contribution, your work would not get done. Robust risk management solutions for nonprofits need to take into account the unique risks associated with relying on volunteers in addition to paid staff. Those risks change according to the nature of the volunteer workers’ contributions, so you need a variety of nonprofit volunteer risk management resources. A wide range of support helps you calibrate your insurance and safety practices to take care of your volunteers while protecting your organization from the financial repercussions of exposure to financial liability.

Minimize Risks & Modify Practices

The right insurance policy is only the first step to making your organization safe and welcoming for volunteers. It is also essential that your activities follow best practices for safety, no matter what the work of the day happens to be. Using a risk management checklist curated by your insurer or an industry organization is a great way to catch up on the state of the industry practices you should be using. Most of the time, it’s just a matter of a few minor policy changes to bring your organization’s procedures in line with nonprofit volunteer risk management best practices. Following through with those changes may even save you money on your premium costs.
