Olvera Street MerchantsAssociation Foundation
The Olvera Street Merchants Association Foundation (OSMAF) is dedicated to contributing to thecultural development of Los Angeles in the same way that the merchants of Olvera Street have done so
since its inception by Mrs. Christine Sterling on April 20, 1930. OSMAF’s goal is to preserve and
continue to promote the historical, cultural, educational and traditional contributions of the extendedfamily of Merchants and Artisans who have lived and worked on Olvera Street throughout the course of its long history.
OSMAF, the 501c3, came into being on December, 2005 however the members and the board of directors and their families have been functioning unofficially in a similar capacity for over 75 years. Asthe policies that govern the city of Los Angeles and El Pueblo Historic Monument Authority of whichOlvera Street is a major component, have changed, it has become clear that there is a need to formalizethe protection of the traditions of Olvera Street and by extension the community.
 
Therefore a group of the Olvera Street merchants who have been designated as a human cultural resourceof the City of Los Angeles filed for a nonprofit status in order to provide an avenue for friends of OlveraStreet to assist us in preserving and presenting traditional, cultural, and educational events.
