Celebrating the Chief Justice's accomplishments and empowering women to achieve their ambitions.
Vision: Kansas Supreme Court Chief Justice Kay McFarland’s dream was to leave a legacy gift of a world class Japanese garden in the capitol city of the state she served. Kay’s garden will be a destination filled with serenity and breath-taking views. It will offer inspiration, accommodate contemplation and serve as a venue for life changing experiences.
Legacy: Chief Justice McFarland established a living trust to help fund her dream of a world class Japanese garden. Kay’s Garden will cost $6,640,000. The Kay E. McFarland Living Trust established funds that will pay for more than 62% of the project costs and established a permanent endowment fund of to maintain the garden into perpetuity. Currently, there is a private fundraising campaign committed to raising the remaining $1,250,000. We need your help to make this project a reality.
Kay's life and accomplishments created a legacy. Her story will be told at Kay’s Garden to inspire future generations of women to aspire the same way she did.
