Dear Friends,

Thank You Those words don’t begin to express the gratitude, excitement, or sincerity we feel for your support and partnership through what has been an incredible, milestone year for Comp-U-Dopt. This year was about many things but they all circle back to sustainability. From developing new and better programming, establishing more partnerships with schools and community organizations, deepening relationships with Houston companies and foundations, to increasing awareness of our programs with community members and the children we serve, we couldn’t have done it without you. This year we served students from across 9,600 square miles, distributed over 1,800 computers, launched programs at 7 new sites, and reached more than 1,900 students with technology education. In the following pages, we share the details on the foundation of our success, milestones, and growth that you played a key role in helping us shape this year. With over 133,000 families across greater Houston without access to computers at home, there is still work to be done. As we embark on 2017 and our 10th year, our vision for a future in which all children have the tools and resources they need to compete in our modern world, becomes increasingly possible.

John Osha Founder & President

Together, the future is bright.

“ “ “ Partnerships


he foundation of our success relies not only on our own efforts but is held up by the partners and volunteers who deliver computers, man hours, dollars, and a strong commitment to strengthening our community as a collective.

Our partnership with Comp-U-Dopt has been such a huge benefit for our agency and the youth in the communities we serve. Their STEAM Team program is innovative and engaging. Their knowledge in how to effectively deliver these programs to middle schools is one of the biggest reasons for the program’s success.”

Sean Brennan Youth Program Manager, Baker Ripley (Formerly Neighborhood Centers)


SWN’s work with Comp-U-Dopt enables our company to have real and lasting impact on our community. Our SWN volunteers are able to create Value+ by supporting local youth education and reducing electronic waste in landfills.

David Dell’Osso Vice President & General Manager, Southwestern Energy

These computers let the students use 21st century technology and problem solving skills to help them prepare not only for school but for their future graduation and college pathways. We look forward to a continued partnership with CompU-Dopt and our students, and hope to add more students to our list of success stories.

Helping Companies Achieve Their Philanthropic and Environmental Goals Comp-U-Dopt is committed to furthering educational opportunities for children who otherwise would not have access to technology at home. By providing these students with refurbished computers outfitted with educational software, our organization helps to bridge the digital divide and facilitate student achievement. With each donation, you are contributing not only to the academic success of a child, but are also reducing the impact computer disposal has on our environment. Every computer donated is one less sent to an already overcrowded landfill. Your donations truly make a difference in the future of our children and our environment.

. With advancing technology, computers are typically replaced every 3 years. . Rather than being put to good use, computers are often placed in storage or thrown away.

. Those computers could be a dream come true for young, eager students. By simply donating your unwanted computers, you can change the life of a child and improve your company’s impact on the environment.
