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 our second year of incredible results. In 2019, more than 1.9 million Californians claimed the CalEITC, a 40% increase over 2018. More than $360 million of CalEITC was put directly into the pockets of low-income families.

As part of our year-round outreach, we:

  • Reached over 1 million parents throughout the state with our back-to-school program
  • Texted over 1.8 million low-income individuals in both English and Spanish
  • Reached over 1.1 million individuals on Facebook
  • Held over 300 events around the state
  • Distributed over 1.8 million pieces of collateral material provided to our partners in seven languages: Spanish, English, Mandarin, Vietnamese, Tagalog, Korean, and Russian
