Support learning through chess for children and youth across Canada by donating today!
Today is Giving Tuesday, which is the perfect opportunity to make a difference through giving.
This year Chess Institute of Canada, Canada’s only charity dedicated to chess education, is participating in Giving Tuesday through the announcement of our Youth Chess Fund. We are excited to share our goal to raise $5000 to celebrate the fund’s launch on this special day.
Our mission to “Bring Chess To Life” can be realized through your contributions, which will provide the many benefits of learning though chess to children & youth across Canada.
Through initiatives like our innovate Chess To Life Program, we utilize the ancient game of chess to build important life and STEM skills for young people—leaving a lasting educational imprint on their lives.
Your donation to CIC’s Youth Chess Fund will help us bring chess-based curriculum into more schools, and provide subsidies to families whose children would not have this unique opportunity otherwise.
This is your opportunity to join donors like the Rosenhek Family, who through the Marvin Rosenhek Community Chess Fund, have contributed to school and community educational initiatives that have brought the magic of chess to a whole new generation of learners.
What will your donation do?
A $50 donation will provide a subsidy for one child in one nine-week program;
A $250 donation will subsidize an entire class;
A $1000 donation can be used to provide a nine-week chess program to an entire school who would not have the option otherwise.
If you’ve already made your Giving Tuesday donation to Chess Institute of Canada, we sincerely thank you. Please share how our programs have benefited you or someone you love with friends and family on social media by using the #Chess2Life and #GivingTuesday hashtags.
And if you haven’t given yet, now is your chance to help us to share the wonder of learning through chess with young people nationwide.
