We often get the question “How can I help with the Newark Chess Club mentorship program?” There are several ways to help:
1. Donate money to help expand and supplement the program. We are a public charity governed under IRS tax code 501(c)3. Donations to the chess club are tax exempt to the donor, so to get the benefit for the tax year, you should make your donation before December 31. No donation is too big or too small. We are PayPal verified!
2. Volunteer your time - one hour a week of chess. Mentors are welcome to volunteer at any of our locations for one hour. Message me for the current schedule.
3. Make an in-kind donation - provide chess boards or Barnes and Noble gift certificates or pay for t-shirts for participants or buy lunch for us or donate food, tickets (movie, concerts, sporting events) etc.
4. Spread the word - tell your friends about the program and encourage them to donate, volunteer or to enroll their kids into the program!
How would you like to help?
Your tax-deductible donation will go towards growing our programs so that we may work with more and more youth of Newark. No donation is too small or too large. Thank you!
