Specialized Coverage for Churches, Synagogues and Other Religious Organizations

At Charity First, we understand that religious institutions are not only a place of worship but also serve as the anchor for many individuals and families throughout the community. In addition to pastoral counseling many activities take place under the umbrella of a religious entity, including sports activities, education, and youth programs, just to name a few. We provide a comprehensive insurance package that addresses the various activities and subsequent challenges and exposures churches, synagogues, and temples face. From providing Property coverage, including for fine art and religious articles, to Liability insurance that includes coverage for clergy and others while carrying out their duties, to separate Sexual Molestation and Abuse limits, our package policy is designed to protect these institutions in the event of property damage, injuries, accidents, and loss. Our Excess insurance policy is designed to protect religious entities in the event of catastrophic losses, with limits available up to $10 million.

With us, you can also offer your clients a full range of coverages so they come to you for all their insurance needs, including providing Employment Practices Liability Insurance, Directors and Officers Liability, Accident Death & Dismemberment, among other key insurance products.

Additionally, you will have the benefit of the underwriting and loss control experience our associates bring to the table to help you properly insure your clients.
