U.S. Chess Federation Patron Program
You can support American chess activities, get a tax deduction and receive recognition around the world in Chess Life magazine!
If you donate $50 or more, your name will be published throughout the year in Chess Life six times per year.
Names of those donating to the USCF Patron Program will also be printed in USCF’s Annual Report, and those donating at least $150 or more will be invited to a special conference with the USCF President and Executive Director during the US Open.
Contribute at least $1500, and your name will also appear monthly in a special Chess Life box on the same page as our Executive Board and Professional Staff.
Names of all patrons will also be listed on the USCF Website for a year, with Gold Patrons ($5,000 or more) and Gold Benefactors ($15,000 or more) honored on the homepage.
All Patron Program donations will be used for USCF projects consistent with the U.S. Chess Trust’s activities: scholastic chess, junior chess, prison chess, and U.S. representation in international events.
