Florida Insurance Trust™ (F.I.T.) does not perform any direct sales, but instead utilizes independent agents. This process is overseen by our program administrator, Non-Profit Insurance Services, Inc. (NPIS). F.I.T. through NPIS has established preferred agents throughout the state of Florida to represent our program. These agents have been educated and specialized in the insurance needs of the non-profit community.

All lines can be purchased from your local agent, who can provide local services. For more information or a list of preferred agents, please contact Peter Herron-Brown at (888) 794-7771 or (407) 936-2132. We are the perfect fit for Florida's non-profits. We look forward to hearing from you.

nonprofitAdministrator: Non-Profit Insurance Services, Inc. (NPIS)

NPIS is proud to be the program administrator for the Florida Insurance Trust (F.I.T.). The Florida Insurance Trust is the first and only trust in Florida for non-profit entities. In January 2007 Governor Crist signed into law FS624.4625 which allows two or more non-profits that receive 75% or more of their funding from state, local or federal government to pool their workers’ compensation, property, liability, professional and auto coverages for purposes of group purchasing.

By utilizing a trust arrangement, the non-profit is able to reduce insurance premium expenses without reducing any coverages. NPIS is the only program administrator in the State of Florida dedicated exclusively to working with non-profit entities.
NPIS provides trust administration which includes:

  • Placing Excess Policies
  • Issuing Policies
  • Accounting
  • Underwriting
  • Marketing
