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 is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit private foundation with a focus on WASH (water access, sanitation, and hygiene) and workforce development. It was founded by Mary Palmer Enroth and named the Palmer Foundation in honor of Stanton Palmer, first president of Snap-on Tools, and his son, Rogers Palmer, senior vice president of Snap-on Tools. The Foundation's board of directors decided to support competitive domestic and international grant proposals into perpetuity.
The trustees believe in honest, open communication, creativity, education and individual empowerment.
