Above all else, our belief in the educational benefits from one of the world's oldest game of strategy remains the driving force behind the Saint Louis Chess Club. Chess is not just a game of king and queens, but rather a tool that teaches strategic thinking, anticipating consequences, planning and problem solving. As research continues to reveal a direct link between learning chess and higher academic achievement, the STLCC prides itself on remaining at the forefront of chess education and providing that impact to each one of its members.
Your generosity makes a direct impact on the lives and education of Saint Louis children, helping them get ahead at an early age by introducing chess' inherent academic benefits. By donating to our Scholastic Chess Program, you are helping an area student receive after-school scholastic programming, providing them with certified instruction, professional curriculum and a set of life skills they will keep forever.
The Saint Louis Chess Club is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization that is committed to making chess an important part of our community.
