The German Chess Foundation (Deutsche Schachstiftung) was founded in 2006 with the goal of propagating high-quality, methodical chess instruction in primary schools.


Chess is much more than a mere game and ought to constitute an integral part of our educational and instructive culture. We see ourselves as being responsible for sensitising the positive forces of society towards accepting chess as instrumental in encouraging (an instrument of) a value-oriented education.
