TXCPA Houston, a chapter of the Texas Society of Certified Public Accountants, was organized in 1928, and, for nearly a century, we have been a trusted professional community for CPAs in the greater Houston area.
With nearly 8,000 members from a 13-county area*, we are the largest CPA chapter in Texas. TXCPA Houston has a reputation for action, integrity and competence as the result of the strong leadership of our volunteers.
CPAs Helping Schools provides funding to local districts for educational projects, emphasizing aid to economically disadvantaged schools and volunteers participate in career day presentations at local schools.
Since 2002, CPAs Helping Schools has reviewed over 600 grant applications, awarding funding in excess of $550,000 to over 200 schools in 35 local districts, private, parochial schools, and nonprofit educational organizations. In addition to providing education basics for at-risk youth, the financial support of CPAs Helping Schools continues to establish initiatives including math, technology, and literacy programs, library improvements, science materials, resources for after-school programs, fine art programs, and health awareness.
