Our Impact

Our primary program, CalEITC4Me, is a public-private partnership to spread awareness of the first-ever state Earned Income Tax Credit to put more money into the pockets of millions of Californians.

CalEITC4Me Rounds out Record-Breaking Year

After piloting a new year-round EITC organizing model in 2018, CalEITC4Me is thrilled to announce incredible results — more than 1.4 million Californians claimed the Cal EITC. Over $342 million of CalEITC was put directly into the pockets of the low-income families we served on top of the overall $2 billion of federal EITC these families were able to earn.

As part of our year-round outreach, we:

  • Reached over 1 million parents throughout the state with our back-to-school program
  • Texted over 1.2 million low-income individuals in both English and Spanish
  • Reached over 1.5 million individuals on Facebook
  • Held over 200 events around the state
  • Distributed over 1 million pieces of collateral material provided to our partners in multiple languages including English, Spanish, Mandarin, and for the first time in Vietnamese
