Little Ways You Can Help

Hampton Roads Chess Association is a 501(c)(3).  Your contributions are tax deductible!

Even if you do not itemize deductions, you may be able to write off a portion of your charitable giving — check with your tax professional (or tax software to guide you through what’s deductible).

Not everyone has a lot of disposable income with inflation these days!  But as little as $7 can give a kid premium access to an online training account, $30 can pay entry fees for a local tournament, and every little bit helps us pay our normal program costs, including awards, rating fees, supplies, coaching, and more.

Monetary donations:  The best way to donate directly to HRCA is through Zeffy. Scan the QR code below or  CLICK HERE TO DONATE — one-time and monthly options available!  No fees are deducted.
