Chess Scholarships!

There are many children who would love to take private chess lessons, and/or attend tournaments, but in

many cases it is difficult if not impossible for them to do so due to financial concerns.  Alec’s Chess Club

is committed to helping as many of these kids as possible.  Thanks to your past generosity, many children

have been able to receive either partial or full scholarships.  But in order for this work to continue, I need your

help!  Would you be willing to donate to the Alec’s Chess Club Scholarship Fund?  No gift is too small.  All

donations are tax-deductible.  I hope you will consider being the difference-maker for a young chess student

who really needs your help.
