About Us


How We're Helping

The mission of Chess Girls DC 501c3 nonprofit organizations is to build the confidence of girls using chess as a tool. Chess Girls DC was launched in response to scientific evidence that self -confidence plays a tremendous role in a girl’s approach to academics; this requires higher level thinking skills. Scientific studies show that confidence in one’s abilities has a significant impact on learning and performance on many levels. Confidence in one’s ability, determines how well students motivate themselves and persevere in the face of adversity.

Chess Girls DC in partnership with Ben's Chili Bowl Scholarship Foundation is focused on creating more resources for girls to afford to attend university.


Missions Aligned

The Ben’s Chili Bowl Foundation was founded to provide service to the community and the neighborhoods in which we live. The Foundation contributes by engaging in community projects through out the year at various locations around the city. 

The Foundation also raises funds from individuals and corporations,

enabling organizations such as Chess Girls DC 501c3 Nonprofit organization to provide more resources to assist students with college tuition.
