Giving Tuesday 2021

 

Dear US Chess Friends,

#GivingTuesday is a global day of generosity taking place today. It was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past 9 years this idea has grown into a year-round global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

 US Chess is proud to be a part of this global celebration of giving that empowers people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. #GivingTuesday is an opportunity for members of the chess community to stand united and make a positive change in the lives of others.

With 97,000 members until the pandemic hit, US Chess facilitates connection among clubs, scholastic programs, and individuals across the nation. An estimated 70 million chess enthusiasts in the United States have yet to join — or even hear of — US Chess.

We want to reach out, extend an invitation, and ensure that chess is fully recognized nationwide for its benefits as an invaluable tool for education, recreation, and rehabilitation.

As you know, few organizations can match the diversity of our community and the gratifying sense of inclusion that comes with it. Everyone is welcome in the US Chess Federation, and we believe the culture of inclusion is our unique strength and advantage.

And this is why we're reaching out to the US Chess community this #GivingTuesday. Please consider how you’d like to participate in #GivingTuesday by advancing our collective mission to:

“Empower people, enrich lives, and enhance communities through chess.”

For more information about #GivingTuesday, please visit our webpage at uschess.org at the “Give” tab. You can also make a tax-deductible donation by clicking here.

It is our sincerest wish that you and your family stay healthy and safe during this Holiday Season. Happy Holidays and thank you for supporting US Chess!

Warm Regards,

Carol Meyer
US Chess Executive Director
