USDA'S Beyond the Dance Floor: USDA’s 501(c)3 program

Program Description:

Over the years it seems as though the IRS has pigeon holed Square Dance Groups into the 501(c)(7) Nonprofit Category – But this is absolutely not where Square Dance Groups Belong. The 501(c)(7) category is for “closed membership groups” similar to Country Clubs. Any Income from non-members or guests as we Square Dancers like to call them, would be taxable. After many years of trying, USDA was finally able to establish the entire organization as a 501(c)3 Not-for-Profit organization, who in turn can offer that same status to groups and organizations affiliated with USDA. This program will outline how your organization can benefit from this status; application and renewal processes will be outlined during the session.


Jim Maczko & Patty Wilcox. Jim is well known in all aspects of square dancing. He is a founding member of the California Council of Square Dancers, Inc., which he and Patty just became the Presidents of. He is also a founding member of the United Square Dancers of America and the ARTS-Dance Foundation. Together they have been a driving force in square dancing for many years.
