US Chess has received an anonymous donation of $20,000 to match your gift in supporting at-risk youth during the 2021-2022 academic year. By giving today, you will provide a child with all the benefits associated with chess: heightened confidence, enhanced focus, and personal growth. These advantages translate into life skills that will benefit the player for years to come. Your gift supports membership, equipment, or even program coaching and furthers our mission to empower people, enrich lives, and enhance communities through chess Just $20 can cover a roll-up chess board, chess pieces and US Chess membership, which makes a child eligible for online and live tournaments where they can earn a national ranking. $100 covers those costs for a whole chess team. 

Chess exposure helps students develop skills which enhances their learning in other areas. Critical thinking, winning graciously, learning from losses, and problem solving are hallmarks of learning chess. We invite you to give the gift of chess today to students in need. A successful campaign will deliver chess to over 4,400 deserving young people.
