Golden State Opportunity was founded by Joe Sanberg in 2015 and 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 (Cal EITC), one of the strongest tools to alleviate poverty while stimulating the economy. We have helped over 4 million families in California receive $4 billion through the California and Federal EITC. In just this last year, GSO led in the effort to successfully double the Cal EITC, increasing it to a $1 billion program, and one of the largest anti-poverty initiatives in the country.
