The Palmer Foundation empowers people to reach their highest potential. We strive to be a catalyst for change by funding water access, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) initiatives and preparing youth and adults for quality careers. Our grants are focused on projects that are realistic, impactful, and measurable.
The Palmer Foundation was founded by Rogers Palmer and his wife, Mary, in 1990. Once fully vested, in 1995, the Board of Directors decided to support competitive domestic and international grant proposals in the area of the arts, education and health services. The Palmer Foundation now funds programs focusing on water access, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) initiatives and preparing youth and adults for quality careers.
The trustees believe in honest, open communication, creativity, education and individual empowerment.
