All Join Hands (AJH) is the informal name for the nonprofit legal entity.

AJH was formed in 2002, and registered with the United States Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt corporation.

The idea for All Join Hands came from a brainstorming session by a group of dedicated square dancers who attended the Make Magic convention in Vancouver, British Columbia in 2001. Gordon Macaw spearheaded the small group who made that idea into a reality.

In 1995, Joe Petersen, a member of the Rocky Mountain Rainbeaus in Denver, left provisions in his will to give money to the International Association of Gay Square Dance Clubs (IAGSDC). The Petersen Fund was created as a result. Others have since inquired about how they could help further gay & lesbian square dancing.

All Join Hands is an Associate member of the IAGSDC. In October 2009, All Join Hands was admitted to the governing board of ARTS-Dance (Alliance of Round, Traditional and Square-Dance Inc.)

In 2006, Seth Levine presented All Join Hands with the Golden Boot Award. In 2007, the Foundation presented the award to Scott Philips.
