Websites do not come for free. There are costs involved: hosting fees and domain registration fees for example. I have also put a lot of time and effort into this site over the past ten years, time in which I could have been earning money directly.

Although everything on this site is at present, technically, free, I hope you will consider making a donation if you find the site useful. Any donations received will help me to develop and expand chessKIDS academy.

How much you donate is up to you. As a rough suggestion, for individual use $10 or equivalent for a year's use or $20 for permanent use. For schools or clubs I would suggest a sliding scale of $20-$50 for a year's use or $50-100 for permanent use, depending on the number of children who will be using the site.

You can donate simply and easily through PAYPAL by using the button below. If you don't already have a Paypal account you will be prompted to set one up.

You can also support us by using our chess store for your purchases of chess equipment, books and other goods.
