Space Coast Chess Foundation
Non-profit chess organization servicing the Space Coast of Florida!
The Space Coast Chess Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)(3) educational organization, is one of the premier chess organizations in Florida. Our mission is to promote the educational, scientific, cultural and sporting value of the game chess among people of all ages, with a focus on the East Central Coast of Florida (the “Space Coast”). The Foundation supports scholastic and community chess programs, provides free chess equipment, and organizes and sponsors chess events with the goal of fostering the development of chess and realizing its benefits in life-long learning.
We are best known for organizing and sponsoring the Space Coast Open Chess Festival, which has been held almost every year since 1991. We also started the local Scholastics Chess program, which currently hosts monthly chess tournaments. See the events page for more details on these monthly tournaments.
