Support Us

Make a tax-deductible gift today! Your help will allow our students achieve greatness.
With you by our side, we will repeat success at the various state and national championship tournaments throughout the school year.
Your gift means much more than trophies and medals. Your support allows 70+ young people each year to:

  • Strive for excellence: On average, each of our student chess athletes dedicates 15 hours of his or her week outside of the classroom to chess. Most give up one or both of their weekend days to chess tournaments.
  • Learn from the best: With your support, our chess athletes receive coaching and mentoring by an unparalleled corps of chess masters.
  • Meet their full potential: Your support ensures that ability to pay is never a barrier to greatness. With your help, all travel and registration expenses for tournaments - both near and far - are covered.

Join our amazing community of supporters. Make an easy on-line gift today.
