You have specific risks that our specialized practice of insurance advisors are prepared to help you mitigate and turn into opportunities.

Living What We Both Preach.

You serve everyone in need from animals, to children, the elderly, less fortunate, and the disabled – the list goes onward. Your business faces emerging challenges of long-term sustainability, cybersecurity, contingency and talent development, cost containment, and many more.

Whether your agency is on the brink of expansion or has an established core mission with industry-leading operations, Horton's NonProfit team has 18 years of experience with your peers, allowing swift navigation of the employee benefits and risk management markets.

While this attribute is practically impossible to quantify, we can validate it through our three-pillared mission: to be successful, good, and passed to future generations.  Good is defined as creating a workplace filled with opportunities to make the lives of employees better. We are good for agencies like yours by partnering with you to achieve a long-term strategic plan, lowered costs, and happier employees.

Specialized NonProfit Health Insurance Program

Health Insurance Program Exclusively for NonProfits

Partnering with Community Service Partners (CSP), the Horton Group offers group health insurance plans for NonProfits.

In 2011, five Chicago-based nonprofits recognized they would get better quality insurance for a better price by working together to stabilize and lower their insurance costs. Together these nonprofits formed Community Service Partners (CSP), a 501(c) organization that is dedicated to lowering the cost of their employer-offered health insurance. CSP does this through leveraging wellness, technology, and collective buying power to proactively manage the cost of their health insurance premiums.
