Founded by World Chess Champion Garry Kasparov and Jan Callewaert, driving force behind the European Union’s endorsement for the “Chess in Education” program, the mission of the Foundation is to bring the educational benefits of chess to children and youngsters throughout Europe.

The Foundation promotes chess as a cognitive learning tool in curricular classes and after-school programs for elementary, middle and high schools.

KCFE provides schools with an unique web-based software enabling teachers to teach chess in the classroom and empower pupils to further learn and practice at home.
