Our team at SimpleOSF values all support and donations contributing to the advancement of open-source software. 
All the current core advisers to the board have volunteered thousands of hours of their time and wisdom outside of their already busy professional daily careers in healthcare and educational institutions. 
Our SimpleOSF directors and founder contributed their time and significant initial funds to the advancement of this organization mission and as such are truly committed to open-source software cause. Our signatory directors are proud to further support this non-profit idea of transparency and are not looking for remuneration.
All our organization core participants are also curious and generous people that have some life outside of their involvement here and their other professions. They manage to enjoy their various hobbies and are grateful for any quality time with their friends and family.

Advisors to the Board

Adrian Starzynski, Founder & Chief Technology Officer

Adrian is an entrepreneur and part of consulting team of other healthcare related integrators/inventors with proven track record in industry in Ontario and BC.
He provided IT support and training to over 50 physicians on OSCAR EMR. His expertise, dedication and almost 24/7 problem solving and adaptation ability was tremendous help to local community and doctors during those challenging times of pandemic. His willingness to adopt and accommodate others was paramount to all involved. 
While using other open-source software and OSCAR, he noticed opportunity for enhancement of the program and he contributes to code and add-ons on a regular basis to make the applications better and more feature-rich. After seeing requests for continuous development, bug fixes and feature implementations needed for OSCAR, Adrian initiated this non-profit to improve open-source software including OSCAR EMR by creating bug/feature bounty program which lets users of the open-source software contribute to feature/bug fixes that are important to them and the community. 
Adrian’s idea of this non-profit SimpleOSF has a simple mission; to organize funds for development of the targeted open-source projects and with the counsel of our team to distribute them directly to approved knowledgeable coders who fix the bugs/features requested by the community with efficiency afforded by utilising all modern tools of collaboration with the participants and with minimal administrative burden. 
In his time away from studies and supporting various open-source projects Adrian enjoys playing piano and violin and participating in periodic recitals with local music talents.
