Securing the Legacy

$77,769 of $200,000 raised



As the pandemic continues, we are challenged to re-evaluate our role as educators.

The NSCF has determined that it is not enough to just try “riding the storm out.” Our approach for this next year is to focus on developing new curriculum for schools, homeschool, and community programs, and to create resources and tools that enhance online chess education.

You can help us emerge from this season of turbulence better positioned to make a lifelong impact on the children we serve.

With the generous financial commitment of our friends and benefactors who believe in the importance of our mission, our goal is to raise $200,000 to continue providing high-quality chess instruction to children.

If you would like to learn more about our past successes, and future plans, please read this letter from our founder and executive director, FIDE Master Sunil Weeramantry.
