Donating Pieces and Sets
We are formulating a plan to facilitate the connection of needy schools and communities with suitable benefactors, in which we also contribute.
As you may imagine, we do get quite a few requests for donations and we would like to assist all. We also know that if we can provide a good platform we can help to find the funds to get sets to where they are most needed.
Two additional things which need to be considered with respect to donations are: transport from Randburg and then the building of a suitable board (perhaps also could be a storage facility or some plan for storing the pieces). See the section on board options for building your own board.
It is one of our goals to find a generous sponsor for which we can brand pieces and then supply boards, sets and a seating facility (which doubles as a storage place) – all of which can be branded. You can see some info under the corporate branding button.
If you would like some assistance in purchasing or aquiring a BigChess set, please write a suitable motivation and send it to us so we can then put it up here on our website (some photos will also be good). We will then encourage donors to consider your case and perhaps between them and us we can help to get a set to you.
Obviously donors will get loads of exposure (if they wish) and we would like to publish information of donation success stories.
