FYI, here is the e-mail I just sent to Andrew Kantarzhi from Bonafide =
Insurance. We corresponded back in February about insurance. Let me know =
if there's anything I missed. I'll use this as a template for =
discussions with other insurance persons as well.
We corresponded earlier this year regarding insurance for Noisebridge, =
an art and technology project space. Thanks for your patience and =
careful explanations. We have finally closed a lease on a space at 83C =
Wiese Street, San Francisco, CA.
So I am happy to finally resume our discussion with specifics.
I have filled out the insurance application you sent me earlier this =
year with the details concerning the space. What would be the best fax =
number to which to send it?
Since we last talked, we have decided to take Noisebridge the non-profit =
route. We are incorporating as a California Public Benefit non-profit =
and applying for IRS 501c3 status.
Another change since we last talked is that we will be offering =
workshops during the day or evening to members of the public. These will =
last roughly 2-3 hours and concern things like learning a new =
programming language, simple soldering projects, etc.
With regards to coverage, the landlord requires $1MM of general =
liability insurance. Does that also include "slip and fall" incidents? =
If not we would like to purchase that as well.
We are also interested in insurance against theft, but we would like to =
know what different prices are for different levels of coverage. I have =
filled out the application with a $1000 deductible on replacement costs =
totaling $15K. The replacement costs could be higher; we are currently =
building the space, so that's our current guess.
Finally, we are also looking for directors & officers insurance for the =
non-profit. Please let me know if you can provide that, or if not can =
you suggest someone?
Thanks again for all your help,
