Non-profit doesn’t mean non-risk, and at Hanover Risk Solutions, we’ve studied the unique risks faced by these valuable resources found in every city and town. And we understand that cost is often the concern for libraries and historic homes, nature centers and museums.

But there are other concerns that are at the top of the list: staying prepared for a weather emergency, keeping interactive exhibits safe for patrons, and keeping staff aware of the risks of abuse/molestation. With that in mind, we’ve gathered the opinion of experts in risk to help you face the challenges of running a non-profit while devoting your resources to the communities you serve.
