About ONE Foundation
Daniel Palmier, founder and CEO of UC Funds, started ONE Foundation (formerly known as Palmier Foundation) in 2014, a charitable corporation established for the purpose of giving back.
Daniel Palmier has shown social responsibility through the 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 legendary coach, 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 universal scale of what could be achieved by many, he renamed Palmier Foundation, the ONE Foundation. Daniel believes it is God or the One, from whom all blessings come.
ONE Foundation started with the Palmier family who has been involved in charitable work spanning several generations. Now, through ONE Foundation, they have been able to combine efforts and maximize resources to reach communities all across the globe. Today, ONE Foundation strives to be one of the most active philanthropies in the United States, combining financial resources, education, social services, and volunteerism to improve lives and communities across all continents.
Steeped in Judeo-Christian values, ONE Foundation’s mission statement is to acquire and grow resources that assist individuals in local and global communities to attain a better quality of life. ONE Foundation, inspired by His Purpose, works on the principle that helping and serving others is divine and blesses all those who participate. The Bible says in Proverbs 11:25, “A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.” (NIV)
