Since 1983, Metcalf has won 19 National Junior High School titles, and over 25 State Junior High School Championships. Every year, kids and parents work together to raise money in order to help defray the costs of participating in Metcalf chess. These costs include local tournament fees, lessons from a chess master and travel expenses in attending the National Junior High Chess Championships. Metcalf Chess Club is seeking donations to reduce these financial barriers so that all players may achieve their chess goals regardless of their economic circumstances. Metcalf Chess Club has now partnered with Foundation 191, a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization, to facilitate 100% tax-deductible donations through Foundation 191. All donations made on MetcalfChess.com will benefit the Metcalf Middle School Chess Program These kids work hard because they love the game of chess so much. Countless studies have shown the amazing benefits that chess has on a child’s development. Metcalf Chess Club knows how chess can exercise and grow the brain, improve mental health and memory, and make people smarter and more creative individuals. Every little bit helps, and chess goes a long way!
