What is Community Center Insurance?
Not-for-profit community centers provide groups with space to gather and connect, and these centers have an integral role in many villages, towns and cities throughout Massachusetts. Doing good within neighborhoods, however, comes with certain risks. Community center insurance helps these centers protect themselves from property, liability and other risks they face.
Community center insurance is a specialized form of nonprofit insurance that’s uniquely developed to meet the risk mitigation needs of community centers. Because these centers normally are exposed to multiple risks, policies are typically written as package policies that come with several coverages. Centers frequently adjust the coverages in their particular policy to suit their situation.
What Organizations in Massachusetts Need a Community Center Policy?
Any organization in Massachusetts that serves as a place for community groups to gather might want to purchase a community center policy. Allowing for occasional exceptions, these tend to be nonprofit organizations that have public spaces where different groups gather for activities. Some examples of centers that are often well-served by this type of insurance include:
- Youth centers
- Senior centers
- Athletic clubs
- Arts programs
Some organizations, such as religious institutions, may have a few insurance needs that are similar to those of community centers. These organizations frequently have additional coverage needs as well, though, and they may be better served by a slightly different insurance policy.
An insurance agent who specializes in community center policies can help organizations determine whether this is the right type of insurance for them. If there’s another option that’s more appropriate, a specialized agent will likely know about and recommend it.
