About One Foundation
Daniel Palmier, founder and CEO of UC Funds, started One Foundation in 2014, a charitable corporation established for the purpose of giving back.
“I am very blessed to have a 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 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 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 One Foundation.
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 is 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.
To acquire and grow resources to assist those in both local and global communities attain a greater quality of life. 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)
“There’s nothing more important than giving back, and it matters now more than ever.”
