The “Living Legacies” Program provides a unique opportunity for people to give to people while simultaneously honoring the life of a friend or loved one.

A Gesture, Beyond Words.

At some point during our lives, each of us has someone who inspires or changes us for the better, and often for life. Perhaps it is a close friend or relative; perhaps an associate or mentor. Whoever it was that touched your life, when you designate them for a tribute gift, you honor them in a way that words alone cannot. In their name, you in turn touch someone else’s life by helping to sustain PMMA’s (Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America®) mission.


Tributes made through PMMA® are a heartfelt way to memorialize the loss of a friend or family member and also provide a unique opportunity to:

  • Celebrate a birthday or anniversary
  • Say “thank you” to a friend or family member
  • Recognize the exceptional deeds of a friend or associate
  • Say “get well soon” to a recovering friend or loved one
  • Mark any other special occasion


When a family chooses to establish a memorial through PMMA, they select exactly how gifts to the memorial will impact our mission. Memorials can be established to:

  • Fulfill a one-time need within a community
  • Benefit a specific PMMA program (Good Samaritan Program, Music & Memory℠ Program, Art is Ageless®)
  • Support capital improvements
  • Be used wherever there is the greatest need.


Creating a tribute is a profound-yet easy-way to express your love and gratitude. The amount of your gift is never disclosed publicly and all contributions are tax deductible.
