The majority of fiscally sponsored social venture activities are covered by our mandatory insurance package which includes general liability insurance, property coverage, and commercial auto liability. Social ventures should reserve a minimum of $2,500 of gross annual revenue to cover general liability insurance for the first year of operating as the baseline of insurance cost for running your program. Each social ventures is evaluated annually for increased liability exposure and fees may be adjusted accordingly. Insurance costs are not included in the standard fee charged for Tides’ fiscal sponsorship services.
