A certificate of insurance, often referred to as a COI, is a document that provides verification of insurance coverage and contains information on types and limits of coverage, the insurance company, policy number, named policy holder, and the policy's effective periods.
Sometimes projects are asked to provide a certificate of insurance to an organization, that lists them as 'additional insured.' From time to time, grants/contracts, event venues, or landlords will require certificates of insurance. It is important to only provide certificates if required by the other party. The certificate of insurance provides the additionally-insured organization written verification that Community Partners is obligated to pay for any claims arising from the insured activity.
It's easy to request a certificate of coverage by completing this form in the online project portal. For special events, please use the special event certificate form. It takes about a week to process the request, so please try to submit requests for certificates with as much notice as possible to avoid any delays.
Once the form is completed and sent to insurance@CommunityPartners.org, you will receive the certificate within one week. Each certificate costs $40, which will be charged to your project account.
If you have any questions about obtaining a certificate, please contact iInsurance@CommunityPartners.org.
