Our Schools and Community

Chess for Success has programs in 11 counties and 25 school districts  in the Oregon and SW Washington area - and we’re growing every year!

Our journey to empower students through chess is a collective effort, and it wouldn't be possible without the invaluable contributions of our community partners. Together, we strive to create a brighter future for our children, one move at a time.

Schools and School Districts

We currently have the privilege of partnering with 25 school districts across Oregon, Southwest Washington, and Hawaii.

These partnerships are absolutely essential to the success of our organization. They generously offer not only the physical space required for our chess clubs to flourish but also the enthusiastic students and coaches whom we have the honor of serving and working with.

These strong relationships enable us to extend our reach and impact, reaching young minds in diverse communities. Together with our school district partners, we are nurturing a passion for chess and, more importantly, fostering critical life skills that will benefit these students well beyond the chessboard. We are immensely grateful for the ongoing support of our partner districts in helping us achieve our mission.

Community Partners

At Chess for Success, our deep appreciation goes out to our dedicated community partners. Their generous financial support is the backbone of our organization, enabling us to offer our programs to as many students as possible. These invaluable partnerships open doors for us to extend our reach to more Title I and rural schools. Often, these schools face financial constraints that make it challenging to fund programs like ours.

Thanks to the support of our community partners and donors, we can bridge that gap and ensure that these students have access to the benefits of chess and the life skills it imparts. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all our community partners for their unwavering commitment and support. Together, we're making a positive difference in the lives of countless young learners.
