How Can I Help

The most important thing you can do, is show up to events!
When people show up, others do too! Looking to do more? Read on.

Specific things you can do to help

Help us find chess players, and help them find us. 

Print some of these flyers, and post them in places you frequent. 

Take pictures and share chess events on social media! Tag us! 

Engaging with us publicly shows everyone that people attend chess events, and in turn, encourages more people to go.

We need USCF Tournament Directors!

There is a shortage of people able to run USCF events in the Buffalo area. Offer to assist with USCF tournaments so you can learn how it's done, and then we can help you run your own.

Donate money or chess supplies!

Money helps us buy equipment, facilitate events, advertise gatherings, and maintain the status of USCF affiliates.  We are a 501(c)(3) organization, which means all donations are tax deductible at the state and federal level. You can donate through Paypal, Venmo, or by contacting us directly. Consider becoming a monthly donor, no matter how small the contribution, it really adds up!
You can also choose to dedicate your money to any specific club or program from the PayPal link below.
