Before the fun starts, take time to ensure you have the correct fundraiser insurance and that all volunteers are adequately covered for any events. To help you navigate this essential part of hosting a charitable event, here’s our volunteering guide to cover.
For most charitable organisations, fundraising events are an important, regular part of core activities. Running a successful event requires careful management and planning to avoid potential accidents and injuries. Ensuring that you take out the correct fundraiser insurance is crucial for several reasons.
Firstly, if you have a reputation for creating a safe environment for those attending your events (public and helpers) they are more likely to support you in the future and the public will feel confident in showing their support.
Should anything go wrong at your event, your insurance cover can help to limit the potential for any negative publicity which could impact your organisation in the long term. Also, minimising the likelihood of a claim is likely to have a favourable effect on future insurance premiums.
Our insurance cover includes public and product liability for many fundraising events. If you need more information before planning your next fundraiser, you can always contact our friendly team of advisers to ensure it will be covered by your policy. You’ll also benefit from risk support at no extra cost, helping you to stay in the loop with the latest health and safety requirements and risk management advice.
Your policy will also include £2 million business interruption cover and up to £100,000 indemnity for trustees or board members. This covers the organisation if a claim is made against them for committing a wrongful act.
Always speak to your insurer if you have any other queries or would like some advice.
