What Insurance Will I Need for Fundraising Events?
Enjoy peace of mind that you’re covered for whatever the day of your fundraiser throws at you, with this rundown of insurance for fundraising events in Australia. Planning a fundraising event can be a daunting task, but with careful planning and execution, it can be a successful and rewarding experience.
A key component of event planning is securing the appropriate insurance to protect your organisation, attendees, volunteers, and staff. Keep reading for a breakdown of what insurance policies you need to take out in order to have adequate coverage for your fundraising event.
Public Liability Insurance
Public liability insurance for fundraising events covers your organisation for claims made by members of the public who have been injured or had their property damaged at your event. It’s important to note that most venues will require you to have public liability insurance before they will allow you to hold your event on their premises.
If your event is being run by volunteers, it’s essential to make sure they are covered by insurance in case they are injured while carrying out their duties. Volunteer insurance typically provides cover for personal injuries as well as legal expenses.
Similar to volunteer insurance, if you have paid staff members working at your event, it’s important to make sure they’re fully covered by insurance in case they are injured while carrying out their duties. Again, staff insurance typically provides cover for personal injuries as well as legal expenses.
