I’m very excited to share our 2013 Annual Report with all of you – our advocates, donors, and stakeholders! Thanks to your support, Capital IDEA reached two important milestones last year. We placed our 1,000th adult into a high-paying career (read about Elizabeth’s journey on page 5) and we celebrated our 15th anniversary serving Central Texas. I hope you enjoy the many success stories included in our report and know that your support is truly making an impact: 2013 Annual Report.
Here’s looking forward to another successful 15 years!

March 25th, 2014 – Thank You for Amplifying Capital IDEA – We Met Our Goal!
Thanks to the amazing generosity of 52 individuals (alumni, staff, board, new & ongoing donors), we raised a GRAND TOTAL of $11,640! This includes the substantial 50% match of $3,880 from our partners at the St David’s Foundation which helped us surpass our goal of raising $10,000 in 24 hours. THANK YOU to everyone who donated, spread the word, and cheered us on!
“My husband and I really like that you pick clients and help them with whatever is necessary in their life to move them onward toward a decent paying job. The concept of teaching a person to fish rather than just giving them fish to eat makes a long term impact for several generations.” – Kathleen, first time donor to Capital IDEA.
