To protect your volunteers, CIMA’s Volunteers Insurance Service program offers the following three coverages separately or combined:

  • Up to $50,000 in medical expense reimbursement as a result of a covered accident – at a cost of $4.25 per volunteer per year with a minimum premium of $100;
  • Up to $1,000,000 in volunteer liability insurance – $2.10 per volunteer per year with a minimum premium of $100;
  • For those volunteers who drive, each accident limit of liability is subject to the limits outlined in endorsement VIS219, and will not exceed $500,000 – $7.55 per volunteer per year with a minimum premium of $100.

Total cost per volunteer if all coverages are elected: $13.90 per year.

The only other cost involved is the required annual $140 fee that the organization pays for membership in VIS.
(NOTE: State taxes and fees may apply to liability premiums and the membership fee. They are indicated on the application.)

When you begin insuring your volunteers with programs available through VIS, you will receive an email link to each issue of VIS Connections, published in-house by VIS as a means of helping nonprofit organizations understand their exposures to various risks, and take appropriate action to minimize those risks.

We make insurance coverage available to some 2.5 million volunteers every year through 5,000 participating organizations. Those include the Corporation For National and Community Service programs (Retired Senior Volunteer, Foster Grandparent, Senior Companion); social service nonprofits of every description; local governments; work-release and alternative sentencing programs; and many others.
