Golden State Opportunity (GSO) has quickly become one of the most effective anti-poverty organizations in the country. With our principal program, CalEITC4Me, we have led in the creation and expansion of the California Earned Income Tax Credit (CalEITC), one of the strongest tools to alleviate poverty while stimulating the economy.
Through innovative digital outreach, grassroots organizing, coalition building, earned and paid media, and mobile messaging campaigns, GSO runs a multi-layered and cost-effective outreach program to spread awareness of the California and Federal EITC, as well as other public benefits, and promotes free tax preparation services.
In just this last year, GSO led in the effort to successfully double the CalEITC, increasing it to a $1 billion program, and making it one of the largest anti-poverty initiatives in the country. We helped over 4 million families in California receive $4 billion through the California and Federal EITC.
