Certificate of Insurance Request Form
Certificates of Insurance (“COI”)
A Certificate of Insurance (COI) is a form that identifies how much
insurance coverage the holder possesses.
Why is a COI needed? Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania (GSEP)
is obligated to ensure, to the extent reasonably possible, that any
external entities, such as vendors, program providers/collaborators,
organizations, companies, sites or facilities used are safe. One
measure of safety is evidence of adequate insurance coverage. When
planning events on behalf of GSEP (for example, meetings with girls,
day camps, service unit events, activities with vendors, etc.),
certificates of insurance (“COI”) are needed to verify that an
organization or location meets Girl Scouts’ insurance standards.
Likewise, facilities and vendors often request a COI from Girl Scouts
of Eastern PA.
