You know that Palmer College of Chiropractic graduates are the best chiropractors in the world. Full stop. No chiropractic college today has more Doctors of Chiropractic practicing, participating in groundbreaking research and advancing a vision for a world of unlimited health and human potential than Palmer. 

To continue to be the best, we need to rally the Palmer Nation and each year support the place where chiropractic began. 

On Thursday, June 1, 2023, we invite alumni and friends to give to Palmer College during our annual Giving Day, which coincides this year with National Dare Day.  

Every dollar you give is used directly to support Palmer students. And it's not about how much you give... just that you give something. Will you be one of the 375 to give?


The Palmer Nation was out in full force to support our College during the 2023 Palmer College Giving Day. You shattered our goal and helped us raise critical dollars that directly support our students. On behalf of all of us at Palmer, THANK YOU. And if you forgot to give, there’s still time...add your name to the list now!

Picture perfect Palmer pride📷

We will never pass up an opportunity to chat with #PalmerProud alumni, especially when that alumnus is Dr. Bill Spontak (Main, `90), who happened to pop by our office while rocking his #DaretoPalmer advocate shirt! Want to take the dare like Dr. Spontak (and others) did today? Make your gift now!

We just love this act of generosity. Mickey Burt, D.C. and his wife Karla called and dared us to get 50 Palmer alumni to make a gift of any amount within the next three hours. The number 50 is in honor of Dr. Burt’s 50 years in chiropractic, and in celebration of he and Karla’s 50th wedding anniversary. How sweet is that?

We were able to meet the match set up by Mary Pat and unlocked her $10,000 gift thanks to YOU. You’re the best.

And because our alumni are awesome, we’ve been challenged again. This time Paul Liechty, D.C., and his wife, Sherri, are triple-dog-daring us to get 50 Palmer alumni to make a gift of any amount. If we bring in an additional 50 gifts by 4:30 p.m. central today, we’ll unlock a $5,000 donation from the Liechty family. Their gift, combined with yours, will support scholarships, research, technology, and clinical experiences for our students.

Will you be one of the 50 to help us meet this challenge?

In celebration of President of Palmer Florida, Peter Martin, D.C.’s upcoming retirement, we are proud to announce the new Dr. Peter Martin Opportunity Scholarship, which has been established to celebrate Dr. Martin’s career. We are hoping to make this scholarship the largest endowed scholarship for Florida students. But we need your help during our Palmer College Giving Day.

Your gift to the scholarship will directly support Palmer Florida students! Make a gift of ANY amount and we’ll let Dr. Martin know!

Alumni and friends!

We are at just over 90 online donors who have given early or this morning. We’re overwhelmed with gratitude, but there's still a ways to go to 375 total donations. And now we have a matching gift to meet by noon central!

 Mary Pat, a grateful patient and proud supporter of Palmer College, will donate $10,000 to us today if we raise $10,000 between now and 12:00 pm CST today. Help us unlock this generous gift, all of which will support Palmer students with scholarships, technology enhancements, and more.
