Renting out your faith-based venue? Here’s what you need to know about making sure your renters are able to prove to you the insurance protection you deserve.

If you are an administrator of a church, mosque, synagogue or spiritual venue of any kind, chances are you’ve been asked to rent out your venue for special events such as weddings, birthday parties, meetings, yoga classes or workshops.

Renting your venue is a great way to support your organization’s financial needs and goals but it does come with few warnings and precautions. Whether you’re renting out a small meeting room in your facility or the main hall for thousands of guests, having the right insurance protection ensures you are covered for damage or total destruction of your spiritual space.

The most important way to protect your venue is to ensure whoever is renting from you has the right level of insurance. They need to purchase insurance that considers the following:

    1. Your venue’s capacity and the number of people attending.
    2. Type of event. Are you hosting a wedding, a charity fundraiser, a music show or political workshop?
    3. Will the event include outside food sales or concessions involving alcohol. If alcohol is involved then liquor liability should be purchased.
    4. Key characteristics of your building with respect to rebuilding or repairing damage done by the short term tenant. Have your renter choose a liability limit sufficient to put the facility back into the same shape it was before it was damaged.
    5. Equipment rental coverage. Your renters need to be sure they are covered in case any of the rentals are damaged so that you are not asked to pay for the damage.
    6. Staff safety. Your renter needs to ensure they have full coverage in case anyone gets hurt or injured at their event so that the venue owner is not left paying the medical bills and loss of future earning for the injured person.

Making sure your next renter has the right level of Event Insurance will give you peace of mind that you’re covered in the event that anything goes sideways, which does happen more often than you’d think.

Protégé: Insurance for Art Schools

Does your art school work with an insurance brokerage that has specialized knowledge of the arts and entertainment community, and that understands the specific needs of an arts organization?

Protégé is an insurance product custom-designed for art schools by Front Row Insurance Brokers. The program grew organically out of our longstanding engagement with the arts community. We realized that creators are also educators, and that our clients needed an insurance product that could cover their workshops, summer camps, and training seminars. We wanted to create a policy that helps foster creative expression, one that protects teachers and students alike, that helps create safe spaces to learn, where students can take risks, challenge each other, and grow with confidence.

Coverages available include:

  • Studio Property
  • Business Continuity
  • Bodily injury & Property Damage Liability
  • Educators Errors & Omissions
  • Property off Premise
  • Event Cancellation
  • Abuse Liability

Protégé is one of the few policies to offer abuse coverage. Should the unthinkable occur, we have a team of experts in crisis management that can help you navigate the difficult legal and emotional challenges of allegations of misconduct. But more importantly, we’re proactive. We work with you to develop risk management strategies. For example, we can consult on background checks, or the spatial arrangement of rooms, traffic flows, or scheduling. We want to prevent potential hazards from ever happening in the first place, so that students, staff, and parents can build confidence and trust in each other.

That’s why we partnered with Ecclesiastical, one of the top Insurers worldwide for private schools and cultural institutions. They are an insurance company notable for their outstanding goodwill. Owned by a charitable trust, they donate all their annual profits to charities. They have over 120 years of experience, and world-class resources that are made available to you through Protégé.

Protégé is insurance made for creatives by creatives. What? Insurance can be creative! At Front Row, we like to think of ourselves as part of the ecology of arts and entertainment. We don’t just provide services to the arts community – we’re an integral part of it. Give us a call and find out how Protégé can help protect your most valuable asset: the next generation of artists.

Pricing begins at $600 for a small school. To learn more, click here.
