Why is insurance for the non-profit industry important?

The non-profit sector covers a vast array of risks, so it's important to understand the specific needs faced by organizations in the industry. Policies and services designed for non-profits can better protect against those unique risks, including responsibilities to third parties, responsibility as an employer, and protection of assets.
