What is the purpose of this program?
This program is designed to assist you in creating risk management policies for your nonprofit.
How much does My Risk Management Policies cost?
The cost for a license to My Risk Management Policies is $179 for one year. Members of certain state associations of nonprofits are eligible for a discount on the licensing fee. Your eligibility for a discount will be determined during the registration process. There is no cost to use the program after the first year.
What is the benefit of creating my own policy, step by step, versus using another organization's policy I found online?
Each day, countless leaders find “sample” policies online and begin using them as policies for their organization. Unfortunately, while easy to find, a “sample” policy found in a ten-second web search is rarely suited to your organization’s special circumstances. Instead of addressing a risk, you may be increasing your exposure to loss by adopting an ill-suited policy, or a policy that is so complicated your organization is unable to follow the policy’s terms to a “t.” Policies that have been adopted but aren’t followed will seriously weaken the defense of a claim or lawsuit against your organization. My Risk Management Policies helps you create sound policies that are suited to your organization. By using this tool you’ll avoid the common mistake of using an overly complex or otherwise unsuitable policy.
I would like to purchase the program for my nonprofit, but anticipate that several members of the management team will use the tool to create policies. Does each staff member need a separate license?
No. Our expectation is that a single license may be used by team members working for the same nonprofit. To ensure the most efficient use of the program, simply provide those staff authorized to create and/or edit policies with your log-in information.
If you nonprofit has chapters or affiliates, each chapter should purchase a separate license for the program, as the policies for those chapters will be different from the policies at your organization.
I would like to purchase a license, but would prefer to pay by check. Is that possible?
Yes. To pay by check, simply send your payment and a letter indicating that you wish to purchase a license to My Risk Management Policies to:
Nonprofit Risk Management Center15 N. King Street, Suite 203 Leesburg, VA 20176
Nonprofit Risk Management Center

Leesburg, VA 20176
On the day we receive your payment we will register you as a paid user of the program. We will notify you by telephone and email that your account is ready for use. If you require an invoice, call Sue Weir Jones at (202) 785-3891 with your details.
I work with many nonprofits as a broker (or consultant or advisor). Can I purchase a single license and share the program with all of my clients?
No. Each license is for one person or organization. If you are interested in purchasing a block of licenses for your clients or for your nonprofit's chapters or affiliates, call (202) 785-3891 to discuss the availability of a discount. Discounts begin at 10+ licenses.
How many policies may I choose from and what are their titles?
Policies are being added for subscribers every week. Some of them are listed below.
I need to create some policies for which there aren't any templates. Can you help?
Yes! Please send the names or a description of the policies you need to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to upload templates for your use. We will notify you to let you know when they are ready.
