Empower Ivie's Chess Journey to Greatness!

Donation protected
Hi, my name is Stacia and I am inviting you to join me in fundraising for Ivie Ureto, a wonderful 8-year-old chess prodigy from Nigeria, to achieve her dream of becoming a Grandmaster. Despite facing challenges in her homeland, and a lack of opportunities, Ivie's unwavering passion for chess and her father's unquenchable desire to help her achieve her dreams has led her on an incredible chess journey.

By supporting this cause, you'll help bring Ivie to the United States for a two-week chess immersion in our local chess community, providing her with valuable experiences such as private coaching, attending chess classes, meeting my other star chess students, competing in Ohio's largest scholastic chess league, playing in other rated OTB events, and meeting with elite chess trainer IM Calvin Blocker! Together, we can give Ivie these amazing experiences she wouldn't otherwise have back home. Let's make a lasting impact on Ivie's future and inspire her path toward becoming one of the youngest female grandmasters in history!
