If you’ve helped organize an event such as a 5K run/walk or church festival to raise funds for a cause that is near and dear to you, you know that it only looks easy. In fact, it often seems like as soon as you complete one task on your to-do list, another pops up in its place!
If you’re planning a run/walk, carnival, or other type of fundraiser for your nonprofit, church, school, or maybe even a friend with major medical bills, it’s important to make sure that your general liability policy covers the event. After all, no one wants to work hard on a fundraiser only to have a day-of accident cause them to need to host another fundraising event! Talk to your independent insurance agent today to find out if your current policy provides the coverage you need for your special event.
5K Run / Walk Coverage
Hosting a 5K run/walk is a great way to raise money, but there are many logistics to consider (have you gotten all the proper permits? how much should you charge for entry?) and there are risks involved. After all, you’re responsible for volunteers, spectators, the facility/location, and your participants. A participant liability policy provides coverage for any claims related to bodily injury or property damage due to the event.
Special Event Coverage
You can purchase single event coverage for your charity event; the price will be based upon the number of people in attendance at the event. Special event coverage provides liability coverage in the case of an injured guest or damaged venue. Some venues require this type of coverage before allowing you to host your event at their facility.
If you’re planning a festival, carnival, or other event with food, will alcohol be served? How will this impact your liability coverage? If alcohol will be served at your charity dinner, silent auction, street festival, or other event, make sure that your policy includes host liquor liability coverage.
Serving food at your event also brings the risk of food poisoning or food spoilage. Because each event is unique, it’s best to speak with an independent insurance agent about what type of additional coverage (if any) your event needs.
