How Your Donation Helps

Because of your donations:

  • We have sent our teachers to schools in the poorest neighborhoods of Washington, helping students perform at higher levels. Nearly all chess-playing students complete high school in four years.
  • We have donated chess equipment to schools serving at-risk children.
  • We are able to subsidize fees to our Chess Kids and Sunday Chess programs.
  • We have paid for a student to travel across the country and play in the Denker Tournament of High School Champions.
  • We purchased US Chess Federation memberships for students who need help.
