At the core of any non-profit organization is providing safety and stability for its clients, whether it be through programs or housing. But what happens when the safety of your community is compromised by a property disaster such as a flood, fire, burst pipe, hurricane, or other weather-related perils? Your team is focused on ensuring the safety of its clients, mitigating the damage at your facility and hoping that operations are impacted as little as possible. Within this process, one crucial element of recovery is often left on the back burner; the property insurance claim.
When property disasters occur, keeping order and maintaining operations of your non-profit or social service organization is chaotic enough, but the real work begins when it’s time to recoup insurance funds in order to rebuild the non-profit. Typically, non-profits do not have the extra human resources available to manage property insurance claims nor the expertise to submit the claims properly in order to receive funds as quickly as possible to rebuild. Unfortunately, this predicament leaves recovery at the hands of the insurance company; and with no advocate protecting your best interests, there is a higher risk of a delayed, denied or minimized claim.
An unexpected financial hit can put your operations at risk as various business personal property can be damaged by a property disaster. For example:
- vocational workshop – computers, tablets, printers, projectors, desks, media equipment
- soup kitchens- ovens, microwaves, refrigerators, walk-in freezers, ingredient inventory
- pool – pool maintenance products and equipment
- gym exercise equipment
- sports flooring, sports equipment, uniforms, and maintenance equipment
- musical instruments
