Chess transcends age, race, gender, religion, language, nationality, and socioeconomic status. It provides countless benefits to those who play it while creating friendships and building bridges that otherwise would not exist. One hundred percent of contributions to Chess It Up Iowa go toward building and growing a chess community in the Des Moines metro area. Your donation will provide opportunities for children to gain mental strength, focus and problem solving skills from the game. Please make the right move and donate today!
