InterVol, a non-profit organization based in Rochester, New York, has a simple mission: to recover viable unused medical supplies from hospitals and clinics and distribute them to those in need. To date, InterVol has shipped supplies to 73 countries around the world. In addition, each year InterVol supports multiple medical mission trips to countries in dire need of healthcare.
What can your donation achieve? Here’s a glimpse:
-$26.20 Provides a week of gas that helps trucks transport medical supplies to cargo ships
-$260.20 Provides a monthly supply of antibiotics for a child who has insufficient immunity protections
-$2,620 Provides a shipment of seven pallets of medical supplies for a village
-$5,240 Provides a shipment of seven pallets of life-saving surgical equipment for a larger community
-$12,620 Provides a village with a new surgical doctor that can respond to emergencies in hours versus days or weeks
Raising funds for InterVol aligns with the mission of The Palmier Foundation. We believe that serving others is divine, and that giving is not a choice, it’s an obligation.
History: Daniel Palmier, founder and CEO of UC Funds, started The Palmier Foundation in 2014, a charitable corporation established with 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 order to have the most positive global and community impact. Daniel Palmier has shown social responsibility through support of many worthwhile causes. It all started when he studied at the University of Notre Dame, where Daniel earned a Bachelor of Science 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. After graduating, 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.
Who we are: The Palmier Foundation started with the Palmier family who, as individuals, have been involved in charitable work over several generations. Now, through The Palmier Foundation, they have combined their efforts to reach a broader community. Since its inception, The Palmier Foundation has assisted multiple communities through many programs and organizations and will continue to do so as the Palmier’s legacy.
Mission statement: The Palmier Foundation aquires and grows resources to assist those in both local and global communities.
Underpinned by Judeo-Christian values, The Palmier Foundation supports dozens of community-based and global charities promoting medical aid, health, arts, education, physical fitness and animal welfare.
