The Chess Institute of Canada (CIC) collects donations from individuals as well as private organizations to help provide chess clubs and curriculum classes to lower-income communities.  We also apportion overages that we collect from our programs and events to a scholarship fund that helps families, communities and schools in need.

We also rely heavily on private and corporate donors. Organizations may choose to fund chess clubs or curriculum classes for an entire school for a year or more. Any private or corporate parties interested in funding our programs should contact us.
