a NON-Profit Organization

Established in 1987 as a non-profit chess club and tournament organization, CFCC was designated in April 2018 as a 501(c)(3) private foundation that allows donors to deduct their contributions made to the Central Florida Chess Club under IRC section 170. Please contact us if you are interested in making a tax deductible donation to help support our efforts in making competitive chess events available in Central Florida.


The Central Florida Chess Club was established in 1987 as a non-profit organization with the mission to support chess activities in Central Florida and relies on volunteers who donate their time and expertise to fill its board positions. Each year during the annual CFCC Club Championship, CFCC holds its annual directors meeting and conducts new elections to fulfill its volunteer Board of Directors.
