It is an all-volunteer organization with no overhead; its donations go directly to educational supplements for the kids. During the 2011-2012 school year, CapCityKids funded over $150,000 in a grant programs for tutors at Austin’s homeless shelters and a math specialist at Matthews Elementary, where a large number of homeless students attend.
