The Palmier Foundation is pleased to support the following:
Haiti Self Sustainability Project
The Notre Dame Haiti Program was established to combat Lymphatic Filariasis (LF). With more than 26% of Haiti’s population affected by the disease, the University of Notre Dame provides hope and relief to the Haitian people while living out its mission to cultivate in its students not only an appreciation for the great achievements of human beings but also a disciplined sensibility to the poverty, injustice and oppression that burdens the lives of so many. The three pillars in the fight against LF are mass drug administration, the production and distribution of co-fortified salt-a tool to eliminate LF and treatment of those affected with LF.

St. Christopher's School
Located in Staten Island, New York, St. Christopher’s School promotes academic excellence and spiritual development in the context of the Catholic values of community, service, reverence and leadership. When Superstorm Sandy hit Staten Island last October, it affected over 40 of the school’s families – materially, emotionally and spiritually. In all of these challenges, the school received a very generous donation from Daniel Palmier (’75), through the Palmier Foundation. These funds went directly to assist the school families affected through tuition assistance. This assisted the school to get back on their feet and maintain their role as one of the bedrocks of the community.
Since 1954, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) has been touching millions of lives. FCA partners with local churches, businesses, parents and volunteers to invest in coaches and athletes participating in club, recreational and youth sports teams. FCA Teams have also been created to impact the sports community. Other areas of Community ministry include adult ministries, professional athlete ministries, resources and clinics. Through their work, the FCA has been challenging coaches and athletes on the professional, college, high school, junior high and youth levels to use the powerful medium of athletics to impact the world for Jesus Christ.
