4+ YEARS OF MATH & READING IMPROVEMENT

In the 4 school years in which education services impacts in Chicago Public Schools have been measured, chess programs were found to have a positive impact on student reading and math achievement every year.

Renaissance Knights Chess Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) community-based nonprofit organization dedicated to improving reading, writing and math performance through the use of chess as a learning tool. Contributions to the foundation are tax deductible and go towards extended learning opportunities for students in Title I Schools.

Why is chess so important for these kids?

Chess has proven one of the most effective ways to improve a child’s overall well-being. In children, chess can enhance motor skills, improve test scores and sharpen attentiveness and focus.

Chess 4 Kidz! could not exist without the generosity of others, and now you have the opportunity to give the gift of chess to a child in need. So many people want a chance to give back to their community, and there’s no better way to do that than by providing chess education to Chicago’s disadvantaged children.

BECAUSE WITH YOUR GIFT,
YOU TOO BECOME PART OF THE ANSWER.

We need generous donors like you to keep the program alive.  You’re not just giving chess to these kids – you’re providing them with better grades, fuller brain growth and a sense of focus and creativity that they may not have otherwise known. So please, take a moment to give whatever you can.
