The Tanitoluwa Adewumi Foundation is committed to helping children achieve excellence in learning the game of chess and competing in chess tournaments by providing funding for those in need who cannot afford to do so for themselves. The benefits of learning chess are monumental in the development of a child’s mind: 1) Develops critical-thinking, 2) problem-solving skills, 3) buildings mathematical abilities, 4) help to develop positive competitiveness, and last, but not least 5) develops intellectual creativity. This skill set will not only help children to succeed in chess, but is transferable to a successful life. The Tanitoluwa Adewumi Foundation, Inc., a New York corporation, is in the process of applying for recognition as a charity exemption from federal income tax under §501c (3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
