The Independent Order of Odd Fellows was formed in San Francisco in 1849, even before California became a state. The Odd Fellows are a fraternal nonprofit organization which seeks to help the community by, among other things, supporting local artists, as well as by establishing homes for seniors and children throughout the Bay Area.
