All Join Hands (Charitable Foundation)
"All Join Hands" (or "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.
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 and sits on the Governing Board of ARTS-Dance (Alliance of Round, Traditional and Square-Dance Inc.)
In October 2009, All Join Hands was admitted to the governing board of ARTS-Dance.
