Operation: Play Chess, Exercise: Chess Sets

Chess Vets is a 501(c)(3) formed in 2016. We have donated thousands of travel chess sets to deployed troops. This has been coupled with many chess programs for the community and troops. We are a Guidestar Gold Transparency nonprofit. 100% goes to our mission. We are made up of 100% unpaid volunteers.

$5 allows us to buy chess pieces for the sets.
$10 allows us to buy travel chess sets for "care packages".
$15 allows us to buy custom-made tournament "mousepad" boards.
$20 allows us to supply a tournament chess set.
$3000 allows us to donate and set up a concrete public chess table for parks, community centers, and other public spaces.
