About Council Services Plus...

CS Plus was created to bring an unmatched level of understanding of nonprofit operations and insurance solution development to members of NYCON and the nonprofit community.

The New York Council of Nonprofits (NYCON) has been offering and endorsing insurance programs since the 1960’s. In that time NYCON began to realize that nonprofit organizations are very unique in their insurance needs and were vastly misunderstood by many insurance organizations.

In addition to their unique operations and philosophy, many nonprofit were not large enough to attract the attention and dedication of the broker community. Since over 90% of nonprofits have budgets less than $1MM, NYCON discovered that most experienced insurance producers only served the top 10%, leaving 90% of the nonprofit community with no access to top notch insurance advice.

In 1998, NYCON recognized the need to have an experienced insurance brokerage dedicated solely to assisting nonprofits with insurance issues.

Today CS Plus works with more than 1,200 NYCON members. Through our broker services and our affiliation with the endorsed NYCON program brokers, we have helped thousands of nonprofits feel better about their insurance programs, save money and help them help their communities. CS Plus is also recognized as one of the capital region’s largest health and life brokerages. Whether it is a concern for liability or a need for a comprehensive employee benefit package, CS Plus is the insurance resource for your nonprofit.
