Your focus on the community and to your congregation are at the heart of your mission. You need to protect your mission, along with every other aspect of your operation. This may include clergy, church leaders, volunteers, youth groups or property.

Our Religious program offers specific coverages to organizations that are focused on the ministry and community service aspects that enrich our lives and lift our spirits.

Why You Need Coverage: Claims Scenarios

Vehicle coverage
A church added a brand new 15-passenger van to its fleet but had not yet scheduled it to its insurance policy. While a church employee was driving the new van, the van slipped on an ice patch and hit a tree, causing damage to the bumper and headlight. The employee was relieved to find that the policy included Great American’s Signature Auto Endorsement, which affords physical damage coverage to newly acquired owned autos.

Employee Dishonesty coverage
A synagogue was collecting charitable funds for community aid. After an audit, the executive director discovered that money was missing. An investigation revealed that only one employee was responsible for collecting, verifying, totaling and depositing the funds. The suspected employee was questioned and admitted to theft of the funds. The synagogue was able to seek reimbursement, knowing that it had added crime coverage to its policy.
