CALLERLAB Foundation for the Preservation and Promotion of Square Dancing Minimize

In the late 1980's, the CALLERLAB Board Of Governors took action to create a foundation which would be dedicated to the preservation and promotion of square dancing. The plan was for this foundation to provide a way for those who wished to make a tax-deductible donation to help in this effort. The CALLERLAB Foundation for the Preservation and Promotion of Square Dancing was formed in 1992 and is registered with the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt corporation.

The Foundation website ( includes history, mission, and goals of the Foundation. It provides information about the accomplishments and plans for future activities. Also included is information regarding the Foundation-sponsored Education Grants. Please take a look at:
