Other ways to donate, support, or volunteer

All gifts are testaments of the passion individuals have for the work of the McCready-Telford Foundation and are appreciated and recognized by the entire St. Andrews Retirement Community. In general, there are numerous and convenient ways in which to support our mission including cash gifts, pledges, and gifts in honor or memory of a special person.  Working with your professional financial consultant, bequests, annuities, life insurance and other planned gift arrangements can be made.  

Ongoing fundraising activities include our Tree of Life displays at McCready Manor and Telford Terrace. Your golden leaf is inscribed with the text of your choice and placed on the tree for permanent display.

In 2010 the McCready-Telford Foundation Legacy Society was formed to recognize those who designate the Foundation in their wills, make a one-time gift, or have cumulative gifts over a period of time.   

Various fundraisers are planned throughout the year all contingent on campaigns implemented. 

The major Foundation volunteer opportunity is participation with the Board of Directors.  Directors are voted in by the entire Board membership.  

The Foundation office is available to assist you and answer any questions you may have.

Mission Statement
The Mission of the McCready-Telford Foundation is to support, promote and advance mutual goals of the McCready Manor Telford Terrace community by managing and allocating endowment funds through fund-raising and philanthropic giving programs. 
Background Statement

The McCready-Telford Foundation was established in 2004 in order to advance the mutual goals of McCready Manor and Telford Terrace residents. This retirement community owes its existence to Stephen and Isabel Bennett McCready. Stephen French McCready left a memorial bequest to honor his wife, Isabel, “to be used to found or enlarge or endow a nursing and retirement community.” The First Presbyterian Church was charged with founding a Richmond home for the elderly. The idea advanced and three other Richmond churches, First Baptist, First Christian and the First United Methodist Church joined forces to build this Continuum of Care Community. The St. Andrews Retirement Community concept was developed in order to provide adequate and affordable housing for middle-income retirees. Daily evidence is available to understand this remarkable and caring housing for senior citizens.

At present, there are seventy-five condominiums, a seventy-three unit assisted living apartment facility (McCready Manor) and a fifty-bed full service nursing facility (Telford Terrace).

The retirement community has approximately 250 residents at any given time. Residents live as independently as possible until time when assistance is needed and available. This retirement community provides compassionate care as a supportive ecumenical mission to the larger community in Richmond, located in Madison County and throughout the region. Adopting a holistic approach, this retirement community offers an environment that fosters independence and physical, spiritual and emotional health since first opening its doors.

Overall, this community owes its existence to personal and financial assistance from many people over the years. The Foundation’s Board of Directors strives to advance the mission of the community along with preserving the history of the Stephen and Isabel Bennett McCready Bequest. Their dream became a reality and their Legacy defined.

Board Chair Statement

Message prepared by: 

Doug Whitlock

President Emeritus

Eastern Kentucky University

President McCready Manor, Inc., St. Andrews Retirement Community, Inc. 

Simply put, the goal of the McCready-Telford Foundation is to improve the quality of life for the residents of McCready Manor, an assisted living facility, and Telford Terrace, a personal care/nursing home facility.  We are proud of the fact that Telford Terrace is a five-star rated facility by the Commonwealth of Kentucky.   The Foundation recently completed a successful campaign to raise funds to buy an emergency generator to serve McCready Manor and Telford Terrace in the event of a power outage, helping guarantee both the comfort and safety of the residents.    McCready Manor and Telford Terrance are components of the larger St. Andrews Place Retirement Community, a Continuum of Care Retirement Community (CCRC).    The challenges faced by this organization include planning for future development and expansion of the assisted living and personal care resources, the provision of Home Health Care Services, and consideration of other programs and services.   Long range planning is underway to address some of these issues and the Home Health Care licensure process is well underway. 

My personal involvement for this organization and my passion for what it does is rooted in several ways.   Firstly, the organization was begun through the cooperation of four local churches, including the one my family attends.  I have always considered the work done by St. Andrews, McCready Manor, and Telford Terrace to be an important ministry to the community.   Secondly, I am a retired university president and think it is good for me to remain active and have something productive with which to occupy my mind.   Lastly, I see service on this board as an excellent way to give back to the community that nurtured me at every turn as I was growing up, being educated, and spending my professional live.

Board Governance
CEO Comments

The McCready-Telford Foundation Board has a standing Governance Committee which consists of three directors and the Executive Director, Foundation. The chair is a board director who is responsible for holding at least two meetings per year. The board is basically smooth-running and seen as fulfilling the responsibilities originally set for the Foundation. All board members go through an orientation session in which all aspects of board membership is reviewed. A job description is presented and discussed with each director during their initial interview – before the full board votes the person in. 

The challenges we face are not unique in board management. 

With this being said, the opportunities include working with the new board governance committee members to set goals of recruiting individuals to make up a balanced and well-equipped board; start an evaluation process to consider re-election; increase the initial and ongoing board education process; and establish a more effective way to communicate in between meetings to keep board directors apprised of activities. 

Overall, this committee has the distinct opportunity to ensure the board is doing its job and doing it well.

CEO Comments
The Treasurer, a banker, maintains excellent records which the Board reviews each month.  At the end of the fiscal year, he provides an overview of the past year.  A member of the Investment Committee also provides a review annually.  Since the financials are basically contributions, pass through funds and investments, the data is quite straight-forward.  Contributions are also recorded by the Executive Director on Exceed! software.
