More Information:

Arts Organizations Insurance

Arts clubs, galleries, organizations, and associations are dynamic operations that are core to the culture of local communities. Each arts club and organization are a non-profit and therefore eligible for savings with Axis Insurance.

Arts non-profits have a variety of risk exposures that require insurance coverage such as meetings and gatherings, performances, recitals, fundraising events, costumes, scores, other assets, board governance, websites, galleries, volunteers, legal expenses, and host liquor liability.

Your arts organization or association should always have a Directors & Officers (D&O) Insurance Policy, that will ensure that if your board is sued, the individual board members are not at risk of losing their personal assets.

Your non-profit depends on volunteers to help things run smoothly. Protect those dedicating their time, as well as your organization, with Volunteer Injury insurance from Axis Insurance. This will insure that in the event of an accident, you can provide your volunteers with medical, catastrophic injury and wage loss benefits and can help your organization avoid potential lawsuits if someone is seriously injured.

We offer discounts on the following insurance coverage to your arts club or organization:

  • General Liability
  • Non-profit Directors and Officers Liability
  • Contents and Assets Coverage
  • Crime Liability
  • Volunteer Injury (AD&D)
  • Cyber Liability
  • Media Liability
  • Legal Expense
  • Host Liquor Events Liability

Are you an arts association? Your arts club non-profit membership is eligible for savings just for being a member of your association. Contact us to find out about our affinity partnership opportunities.
