Paul Palmer lived with joy. He extended unconditional welcome to all. He took interest in people, saw the good in everyone and was openly optimistic about the future. Paul was a gatherer—forever bringing people together to build relationships and strengthen community.  


To celebrate Paul’s lasting legacy of goodness, the National Conflict Resolution Center (NCRC) is proud to establish the Paul Palmer Memorial Fund for Civility, an endowed fund to ensure a lasting tribute in perpetuity.
