Advancing chiropractic through philanthropy
Palmer College is recognized across the globe as The Trusted Leader in Chiropractic Education®. It’s a distinction we intend to be known for not just today, but forever.

Ways to Support Palmer College
By donating to the Palmer Fund, you can support the College’s area of greatest need, scholarships, Palmer academics, the Palmer Center for Chiropractic Research, or Palmer Clinics.
Chiropractic-college admissions are highly competitive. The reputation of the degree, the quality of the facilities, and the cost of tuition are all critical factors in a prospective student’s decision. We know the education we provide is unmatched. We will continue to attract – and graduate – the very best chiropractors of tomorrow if we can remove the financial barriers many students face.
Ninety-four percent of Palmer students receive some form of financial aid, while 19% receive donor-funded scholarships. Your gift to unrestricted scholarships, an existing scholarship, or the establishment of a gift or endowed scholarship ensures that Palmer can offer the best possible chiropractic education to the best and brightest chiropractic students, no matter their financial situation.
To find out more about establishing a gift or endowed scholarship, contact the Alumni & Advancement Office at 800-722-2586×3 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Endowment is the lifeblood of any college – a critical measure of its strength. For endowment donors, their gift is deeply personal. Donors often choose to honor a loved one or someone who had a major influence on their life or career. A gift to Palmer College’s endowment can be given unrestricted, or it can be restricted and designated for specific purposes. Gifts of cash, securities or bonds, planned gifts and/or bequests can be used to add to or establish a new endowed fund.
- Unrestricted Endowment provides a resource that can be used to meet current college priorities and new opportunities as they arise.
- Restricted Endowment can be designated for a specific purpose, such as:
- Endowed Scholarships: Financial assistance for students, based on merit and financial need
- Student Resources: Special projects, leadership training, guest lecturers, library resources, technology, athletics, student clubs and research
- Faculty Excellence: Training, education, travel, faculty awards, research and department stipends
- Campus/Facilities: Maintenance of facilities, campus development and emergency funds
- Chiropractic History: Maintenance of facilities, exhibits, research, artifact acquisition and preservation
