Chess Girls DC Nonprofit Organization needs your help to raise funding to increase the number of students in Washington,DC  during the COVID quarantine who can participate in our online classroom using a Chess Back Pack Give Away Campaign. Our chess program teaches a solid foundation in  Chess strategies .We would like to share our class room with the entire community. 

Chess Girls DC is requesting support to raise $2000 to host 3 days of giving away 300 or more complete chess sets in a back pack at locations inside but not limited to Wards 5, 6, 7, 8 in Washington,DC in an attempt to boost spirits and eliminate idle mindedness during the virtual school semester. This will be paired with a free Zoom class and weekly tournaments for every student for 12 weeks. Prizes will include gold memberships to chesskids.com online chess program.

It is important  for students to continue to practice strategic thinking, focus, awareness, commitment to goals and long term planning in these times of uncertainty. Chess helps students think of productive ways to deal with setbacks and keep your goals in front of you during a crisis.
Chess Girls DC knows that with your help, we can use technology and  innovation to continue our Chess education program by using targeted digital platforms that are tailored to their ability rather than hoping students will find resources on their own. Guided by Founder, Robin Ramson , National Master David Bennett and many other volunteers,Chess Girls DC services over 500 boys and girls every year, hosting tournaments and empowering students with strong chess education foundation.

You may donate directly at chessgirlsdc.org or contact Robin Ramson directly at [email redacted] with additional questions. Chess Girls DC is 501c3 organization.
