Nonprofit Insurance


Every organization is inspired by something different. Each cause has a special meaning to its supporters. All organizations have the same desire to protect their people and reach toward their goals, however, without the worry of being exposed to risk. GuideOne Insurance is proud to be able to help nonprofit and social service for-profit organizations that serve their communities in a variety of fields.

Classes of business include:

Arts & Cultural, Animal-Related, Boys & Girls Clubs, Chambers & Trade Associations, Community Improvement, Environmental Preservation, Family Services, Food Banks & Distribution, Foundations, Job Training, Philanthropy & Grantmaking, Religious & Spiritual, Recreation & Sports, Museums, Service & Fraternal Organizations, Shelters & Group Homes, Sheltered Workshops, Social & Civic Clubs, Social Action & Advocacy, Vocational Schools, and many more.

From your team of volunteers to your work in the community, GuideOne is with you.
