About the Kansas City Chess Foundation


OUR Mission It is the mission of the Kansas City Chess FOundation, an educational organization, to maintain a formal program of instruction to teach the game of chess and to promote and support its educational program through community outreach and local and national partnerships to increase the awareness of the educational value of chess.


In addition, the organization maintains this database of players to keep record of their ratings and progress as they compete in local tournaments.  This ia a very necessary service to the community and will help organize large player populations and give kids a public identity.

The KCCF also organizes and rus local chess tournaments for K-12 students.
