Daniel Palmier, founder and CEO of UC Funds, started the Palmier Foundation in 2014, a charitable corporation established for the purpose of giving back. "I am very blessed to have a supportive family, top notch education and great role models in my life. I am grateful for the opportunity to help someone who may not be as blessed as I am.”
Daniel Palmier funds the Palmier Foundation with profits from select transactions thereby creating a development fund, which will be further invested to maximize profits. The profits will then be distributed to selected charities in in order to have the most positive global and community impact.
Daniel Palmier has shown social responsibility through support of many worthwhile causes starting when he studied at the University of Notre Dame, where Daniel earned a bachelor of science degree in business administration. At Notre Dame, Daniel participated in Bengal Bouts, a charitable boxing tournament, founded in the 1920's by Knute Rockne and then officially named in 1931 for the purpose of raising funds for the Holy Cross Missions in Bangladesh. From these early days, Daniel Palmier continued to engage in philanthropy personally and as an executive businessman. When Daniel saw the scale of what could be achieved he started the Palmier Foundation with his family.
