Pacific Swing Dance Foundation is a non-profit corporation founded in 2018. You can support PSDF through one of our campaigns, or you can contribute to our general operations fund.

  1. #MoveTogether Fund

    The #MoveTogether Fund benefits Black artists, dancers, and musicians in the global Lindy Hop, Swing Dance and Blues Dance scene. Our goal is to raise at least $30,000! Let’s see how much we can raise to support the Black artists of our community! YES! Donations are tax-deductible!
    $46,670.00 donated of $30,000.00 goal
  2. PSDF Operations and Programs Fund

    Although our 501(c)(3) status is pending, you can still make a financial donation. Your donation will go into our general fund to help defray operational expenses and fund new projects such as collecting additional oral histories from original dancers, acquiring collections and memorabilia, and preserving and making items in the existing collection available to the public through digitization. Donors who provide their e-mail addresses will receive updates on new and ongoing projects.

  1. Pacific Swing Dance Archive Living History Project

    The PSDF Archive not only collects and preserves swing dance artifacts from the past, we also collect historical material from current swing dance artists. Our most pressing project is to conduct interviews with remaining original dancers we can find and to interview second generation dancers. We've interviewed Roy Damron, Iggy Hignett, Dwight Lupardis, Tise Chao, and are now embarking on our most ambitious project: a complete oral history with Sylvia Sykes. Contributions will be used to fund our Living History project and the activities of the Archive. Contributions to PSDF are tax deductible.
    $65.00 donated
  2. Rhythm Relief Fundraiser

    Rhythm Relief Fund

    Rhythm Relief is Jumpin’! On the day of the show, May 23, we started at $35,000 and we ended at over $75,000! We are over 50% of the way to our “crazy” goal of $150,000. Let’s see how far we can push this thing! YES! Donations are tax-deductible!
