Functions of a Nonprofit & Beaux Arts Orientation
Led by Jennifer Teter & Ann Miller Titus
Description: The functions of a nonprofit depend on the mission, vision, and values of an organization. We will explore how a nonprofit can address community needs. Nonprofits rely on donations and grants from people who support the cause, as well as other organizations or government entities. Nonprofits can take the form of anything from soup kitchens, local churches, homeless shelters, to labor unions, museums, universities, and hospitals. The Art Center and other nonprofits will be explored as examples as we dive into the functions of a nonprofit and how community members, like you, can get involved.

Led by Bryan Langston
Description: Personal Branding is about developing and managing the legacy or impression you want to leave. From high school to career, you will be competing for resources in many ways. Because it’s a competition, you have to be conscious of how you are developing relationships and references along the way who will support your goals. We’ll talk about ways to do that and things to watch out for.

The Beaux Arts Ball is an annual fundraiser for the Art Center, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. The Art Center provides opportunities for growth and appreciation of the visual fine arts through exhibitions and programs in the community. Changes to the program reflect the Art Center’s strategic plan and the desire to carry on the tradition of Beaux Arts, which is to give young people an opportunity to volunteer and learn to be philanthropists for our community.
First, the Art Center is opening up participation for the top prizes to all high school seniors regardless of gender. The high school senior who raises the most money for The Art Center will be awarded Philanthropic Champion of the Year. The student that volunteers the most hours for The Art Center will be awarded Volunteer Champion of the Year. Scholarships worth $500 will be offered to both the top fundraiser and top volunteer.
Additionally, workshops will be added for teens in grades 9th through 12th so they can learn The Art of Philanthropy. Topics will include the functions of a nonprofit organization, how to fundraise and volunteer, how to dress for success, and more.
Finally, the date of the event will be March 26, 2022 to ensure the best chance at celebrating the students safely in person and to provide a better transition for the changes to the program. The event will be held at the Oakley Lindsay Center.
The purpose of Beaux Arts remains the same. This unique opportunity has helped hundreds of young people to learn the importance of giving back to the community and has provided them with experiences that last a lifetime, not to mention added valuable skills for their college applications. Thanks to the generosity of the Quincy community, the Art Center has been able to continue this tradition for more than 90 years. Their goal now is to broaden that tradition to include more young people to ensure that all students have access to this opportunity to get involved.
Many of the aspects of Beaux Arts will be retained. Participants will be able to enjoy all the festivities of dressing and preparing for a formal event and will benefit from the camaraderie formed while planning, volunteering, and fundraising for the Beaux Arts program.
The Beaux Arts Program is open to high school teens within a 50-mile radius of Quincy and beyond. For more information about the Beaux Arts Program and how to get involved, email Director of Development, Alta King at email@example.com, visit the Art Center at 1515 Jersey St. in Quincy, or call at call (217) 223-5900.
