Capital gifts support specific physical improvements or expansions for Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America (PMMA) campuses and programs, including transportation. The PMMA Board of Trustees must authorize capital campaigns and gifts that involve real estate.

Farmington Presbyterian Manor – GIVE. GATHER. GROW. Fundraising Campaign
Sowing Seeds of Love
Life is best lived when our horizons are constantly being expanded and each day is NURTURED and ENRICHED. We each have an innate need to connect with the world around us and those we share it. Unfortunately, when Farmington Presbyterian Manor was built in 1962, little space was allocated for gathering and ease of access to nature.
To remedy the problem, members of the Farmington community have joined forces to create the
GIVE. GATHER. GROW. Fundraising Campaign.
This $1,250,000 campaign will provide the funding needed to build a new 3,500 square-foot fellowship center where community members can hold everything from weekly worship services to anniversary parties and an outdoor patio and garden area where residents can reconnect with nature and enjoy the healing and therapeutic effects of fresh air and sunshine.
And it’s all within our REACH.
Thanks to a generous, $1 million lead gift from an anonymous donor, we are well on our way to fulfilling our vision. However, to meet all of the current and future needs of our residents, we need additional support to meet our projected completion date of spring 2020.

Residents continue to benefit from grants
Thanks to a grant from the Kansas Department of Transportation (K-DOT), several PMMA communities were able to purchase a transportation van. Residents are enjoying shiny new rides that will help them, as well as community members.
The communities to receive a grant to purchase a new van include: Arkansas City, Lawrence, Newton, Parsons and Topeka.
“Being without transportation is frustrating and can make seniors feel like they’ve really lost their independence. By offering this service, residents and community members can simply call and schedule a ride and be taken to run errands, visit the doctor, go shopping, or even on fun outings,” said one transportation assistant.
