Introducing sustainable chess programs to K-8 schools
We know that chess teaches important life skills and we want to give that opportunity to thousands of children living in Chicago. Many schools have an interest in chess, but don’t have the money, equipment or expertise to start a sustainable program.
By supporting Rook, Rattle & Roll you’ll be helping kids in under-funded schools learn critical thinking skills by providing chess grants for the 2015-16 academic cycle.
Our goal is to provide assistance for up to 10 underfunded Chicago area schools, at a cost of about $1,500 per school. With your help, Rook, Rattle & Roll will provide students:
- Scholastic chess sets
- A chess mentor
- Team t-shirts
- Instructional materials
- Assistance with tournament fees
- Help starting after-school chess clubs
Any funds raised will be put toward helping as many schools as possible.
