Earn It! Keep It! Save It! (EKS) is a coalition of organizations that provide free tax preparation for low-to-moderate income households in the Bay Area. We make sure taxpayers claim the tax credits they are eligible for, helping families maximize their refund to make ends meet. Tax returns are prepared by trained and IRS-certified volunteers.


STARTING POINT: Sign up for orientation!

Are you a prospective or new volunteer? Our volunteers are awesome — find out why so many of them return year-after-year to volunteer with us! Attend an online orientation for new volunteers and get your questions answered before committing to volunteer. Each orientation will cover program results, timeline, benefits, roles, requirements, how to sign up for a site, and how to sign up for training.

If you are a returning or experienced volunteer to our program, please attend one of our "welcome back" sessions for returning volunteers to get re-acquainted with how volunteering will work this upcoming season and signing up for training!
