The PSF is fully governed and managed by volunteers. With experience in areas such as not-for-profit management, finance, medicine, business development, strategic planning, information technology, education, psychology, entrepreneurship, research, industrial operations, and accounting, we believe that we have the right people to guide the Foundation toward achieving its mission.
