Chess Institute of Canada (CIC) collects donations to help carry out our educational mission, using chess to teach a broad set of skills and attitudes for success in today’s world.

Families who can afford to may add an extra donation to their registration fee to help provide subsidies for families, communities and schools in need.

Private and corporate donors may choose to fund chess clubs or curriculum classes for an entire school in a lower-income community for a year or more. Private or corporate parties interested in funding particular programs are invited to contact us.

If you are interested in helping out with our current COVID-19 campaign, please donate via Canada Helps or through our Registration system – Donate here!.

Thank you to all our generous donors for helping us continue making a difference in children’s lives!
