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.
