Chess in the Schools ChessintheSchools, Inc.

Women For Women International

[Supported by Brett Culp] For many years, our family has supported the charity Women for Women. They empower women survivors of war and conflict, providing them with social and economic skills to transform their own lives. They have found that women pass their knowledge to those around them, creating a more just world. I love their commitment to invest in women and their power.
