In a world where lawsuits seem to be commonplace, it is more important than ever to have the appropriate commercial insurance coverage in place. Every nonprofit is unique and there is no ‘magic’ online button, or a one-size fits all insurance program for your nonprofit.
If your agency offers advice or provides professional services, it is imperative to carry Professional Liability Insurance (also known as Errors & Omissions or E&O). If your organization is sued for negligence for errors and/or omissions while performing your professional services, your professional liability policy can help cover settlements and judgement expenses and attorney fees up to your policy limits.
Professional Liability vs. Directors & Officers Insurance:
There is a common misconception that a Directors and Officers (D&O) policy may be all you need. These two types of coverage may seem similar on the outside, but the main difference is who is covered.
Your D&O policy provides insurance brought on by a ‘breach of duty’ or wrongful act allegations and lawsuits arising out of the managerial decisions of board member(s), officers, employees and sometimes volunteers. Professional Liability insurance provides insurance for claims arising from errors and/or omissions made against the organization.
