Why Should You Insure Your Spring Fundraiser?

There are many different types of fundraisers, for a myriad of different noble pursuits. Fundraising events are a means by which non-profit and for-profit organizations can obtain money to operate or extra funds for a specific pursuit. While fundraisers can take a number of forms, they all face many of the same inherent risks. Whether you are throwing a spring gala event or organizing a local bake sale, it would be unfortunate to leave the event vulnerable to legal claims of injury or loss from others. Luckily, organizations can protect themselves against such claims by buying NY fundraiser event insurance. A strong fundraiser insurance policy will provide the accident and liability insurance that your event will require. A seasoned Manhattan insurance agency will be able to help you determine your event and operation’s exactly needs based on your fundraising goals, the type of activity you plan to hold, your participants and the requirements placed on you by your host site. Single event insurance is usually quite affordable, and it can cover your organization’s liability for a range of risks, including property damage and injuries. Should a guest be injured during the event and claim that your operation is at fault, this coverage would protect not only the raised funds but your operation’s assets as well by providing coverage for any legal complications that may arise. At A.J. Benet we can help you protect your fundraising events so that you can focus on raising the funds you need. We specialize in working with non-profit organizations, religious organizations, and a number of other specialty industries throughout the New York area.
