Insurance Information for Clubs & SIGs

Many Harvard Clubs and Shared Interest Groups (SIGs) may not have insurance to cover Club or SIG activities. As a result, Clubs and SIGs or members may feel financially exposed to claims or suits. Additionally, Clubs and SIGs may face a dilemma if the site hosting an event requests an insurance certificate. The right choices on insurance for each Club or SIG will depend on the particular facts in each case.  Each Club or SIG should consult with an insurance agent or attorney with respect to its specific situation and needs.


Because of the growing interest of Club and SIG leaders in obtaining insurance, the HAA with Risk Strategies, an independent insurance brokerage firm, has developed a program for General Liability and Directors & Officers insurance as an additional benefit for Harvard Clubs and SIGs. 

Please note that HAA and Harvard are not providing or participating in this insurance program. Rather, HAA is facilitating this process as a service. The insurer will be the company selected by Risk Strategies and each Club or SIG that chooses to participate will apply and pay for and receive its own independent insurance policy.

 For more information on sample policy coverages please review this presentation prepared exclusively for Harvard Clubs and SIGs by Risk Strategies.

  If your Club or SIG is interested in purchasing coverage through this program, please take a few moments to provide the relevant information included on this underwriting questions survey and return to clubs@harvard.edu.
