The Presbyterian Village Foundation

Presbyterian Village is a non-profit organization guided by a very important principle that sets us apart from most other retirement communities: we are resident-services driven, not profit driven. The Presbyterian Village Foundation seeks and accepts philanthropic gifts from individuals, families, corporations, and foundations to help fulfill the mission of Presbyterian Village.


Private gifts and grants to Presbyterian Village ensure that our standard of care is above the minimum of care required. Such gifts truly enhance the daily experience of all residents through robust services and activities, highly trained staff, facility improvements, and much more.


You can support the Presbyterian Village through monthly or annual gifts, planned gifts such as life insurance policies, charitable gift annuities, or bequests, or major gifts to our endowment or capital facilities funds.


For more detailed information on giving opportunities and how those gifts impact our residents, please contact Melissa Jenkins.


Your gifts make a difference!

Presbyterian Village Receives Mabee Foundation Grant
$400,000 Grant to Enhance Current and Future Services


LITTLE ROCK, AR – February 1, 2017: Presbyterian Village has received a challenge grant in the amount of $400,000 from the J.E. and L.E. Mabee Foundation towards their capital campaign efforts. This grant represents the largest philanthropic gift ever made to Presbyterian Village.


The Mabee Foundation grant will allow Presbyterian Village to secure $2.125 million needed for capital renovation projects as part of Presbyterian Village’s capital campaign which began in 2015. By raising $600,000 by January 2018 Presbyterian Village will be able to receive the full Mabee Foundation award of $400,000.


These new funds will provide for capital renovations which will create improved accessibility for residents, expand services to better serve those with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, and enhance the overall aesthetic environment by modernizing the campus. “These planned renovations are not just to enhance the appeal of our campus, although that is greatly needed. More importantly, we are instituting changes that will allow us to enhance our programs and services for today and the future,” said Dan Yancey, Chief Executive Officer.


Mr. John E. Mabee and his wife, Lottie E. Mabee, formed the J. E. and L. E. Mabee Foundation, Inc., a private charitable foundation, in 1948. As stated in its charter, the purposes of the Foundation are to aid Christian religious organizations, charitable organizations, institutions of higher learning, hospitals and other organizations of a general charitable nature. From the date of its inception through the most recent fiscal year, grants paid by the Tulsa, Oklahoma based Foundation to various educational, religious and charitable institutions have totaled in excess of $1.1 billion.


Presbyterian Village is owned and operated by a nonprofit organization, Presbyterian Village, Inc., and is sponsored by eleven Presbyterian churches in the greater Little Rock metropolitan area. Presbyterian Village is proud to have provided 50 years of housing and services to the community. The mission of Presbyterian Village is to provide comprehensive continuing care for older adults. From independent living to skilled nursing and rehabilitation, Presbyterian Village offers health, comfort, security, and spiritual well being in a living environment that fosters personal dignity and independence.
