Non-Profit Status

Discover how our nonprofit status improves our ability to focus on our students’ education.

Do you wonder how a non-profit beauty school is different from a for-profit one? Read on to find out how Brillare’s non-profit status improves our students’ educational experience.

Our Nonprofit Features

Brillare Beauty Institute is a nonprofit cosmetology school, but what exactly does that mean? Broadly, it means we focus on our students’ graduation rates and careers in the beauty industry, rather than on stockholders’ profits. However, there are more specific differences you should consider when you look at for-profit versus nonprofit schools. A nonprofit institution such as Brillare often includes the following features.

501(c)(3) Status

We are a 501(c)(3) institution, which means we meet the U.S. Internal Revenue Code’s requirements for nonprofit organizations’ federal tax exemption. This status is granted to charitable organizations, including educational institutions. To achieve this status, we have to ensure all our assets go toward charitable purposes, and that none of our activities or net earnings unfairly benefit any private individuals, including our directors and instructors. Additionally, we had to apply for our 501(c)(3) status through the IRS, which carefully examined our structure, programs, and operations before approving us. We work hard to maintain this highly regulated status so we can run our beauty school in a way that best benefits our students.

Financial Aid

Because we are a nonprofit institution, we help our students secure the financial aid they need to attend our cosmetology programs. You can use the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to attend our programs, and our financial aid office can also work with you to find other options to help you attend beauty school and gain higher education that will open up many career paths for you. If you’ve been searching for “hands-on learning schools near me,” look no further. We’re here to help you access the funds to further your education and professional training.

National Accreditation

Since we focus on educating our students, rather than generating profits, we need accreditation to prove we can provide our students with the cosmetology education that will help them launch their careers. What exactly is accreditation? It’s a voluntary process in which a school proves it can meet compliance measures established by governing bodies to provide quality education.

Brillare Beauty Institute is accredited by the Council on Occupational Education (COE). COE is a national nonprofit educational organization that expects us to meet or include the following requirements to earn accreditation: Offer postsecondary career and technical education, offer campus-based instruction, comply with all federal requirements, and exhibit financial stability. We maintain this accreditation because it shows we are a nonprofit institution that keeps its students’ best interests in mind.

Benefits of Choosing a Nonprofit Beauty School

Access to a Fast-Growing Profession

Cosmetology jobs are predicted to increase by 13% by 2026, which is faster than many other professions. This statistic means enrolling in a cosmetology degree program at a nonprofit institution will open up all sorts of career opportunities in the beauty industry.

Education in a Safe, Qualified Learning Environment

We keep our school up to date with all relevant compliance requirements and make sure our classrooms and student-run salon are all safe places for our students to work. That’s because we want our students to learn in a hands-on manner, so they understand how to apply the techniques they learn from our instructors. Since we don’t focus on profits, we can take the time to make sure our students learn the hygiene and safety techniques we teach as well as the cutting, dyeing, and other techniques they’ll use in their cosmetology careers.

Multiple Career Paths

At Brillare Beauty Institute, we offer two main career tracks, cosmetology and esthetics. Cosmetology is broader and includes hairstyling and color treatments as well as manicure and pedicure training, while esthetics focuses strictly on skincare and providing skin treatments and hair removal procedures. We also offer supplemental training, such as Bella Lash extensions training, which can give you the extra experience you may need to land your dream job in the beauty industry.
