Since 2013, the FCA has provided over $14,000 to support chess in our state.
We've supported chess excellence by providing stipends to top individual and team finishers of regional and state championships to ensure they can compete at the next level of competition. We have provided stipends to support Florida representatives to attend each of the National Tournament of Champions (NTOC) events for the National Girls, Denker (9th-12th), Barber (K-9th) and Seniors (50+).
We also have reimbursed schools for the purchase of chess sets and boards around the state. We have supported the Miami Champions Pro Chess League team and helped college students from various schools attend the national collegiate championship tournament, the Pan-American Games. We supported the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind (FSDB) in St. Augustine by purchasing standard Braille boards and chess. We have also supported Women/Girl's as well as Senior tournaments throughout the state from our general fund.
Our income primarily comes from two sources: Memberships and surplus from tournament revenue.
We'd love to do more to support chess in our state and you can help.
