The Purchase Chess Foundation is a new organization founded by area chess enthusiast for the purpose of advancing and growing chess from a young age through adulthood. Their current projects include two scholarships for graduating seniors. Unfortunately, neither scholarship will be accessible until all the funds are available for both. Therefore, West Kentucky Chess will continue to donate a percentage of our net profits from any product sold or event put on until their goal is met.
WKC as well as other area businesses assist with the PCF's projects by sponsoring events and making monetary donations or volunteering our services as needed.
Long term goals for the Purchase Chess Foundation are to establish a continuous Endowment for the scholarships, and then to assist more hands on in the community with individual to group chess needs.
