About ISMA

Since our founding in 1928, the Inner Sunset Merchant’s Association has been the voice of our neighborhood’s business community.  We are an all-volunteer, non profit association committed to supporting, promoting and advocating for the needs of our local business community.  We welcome new merchants into our neighborhood and work hard to drive new business to our growing community.  Our success also depends upon the continued support of our neighbors and the safety and beauty of our neighborhood.

We advocate, along with the San Francisco Council of District Merchants Associations (SFCDMA), the Inner Sunset Park Neighbors (ISPN), the San Francisco Office of Small Business and our local representatives, for legislation that supports a thriving small business community.

We work diligently to develop resources for our growing businesses and we hope to support them through regular business seminars aimed at providing key information for the success of small businesses:  small business lending, accounting practices, retirement programs for small businesses, finding and keeping good employees, ADA compliance issues, city permitting processes, etc.

If you have a business in the Inner Sunset, please join us in making this a merchant corridor destination!
