In 1988 artist William Mangum was asked to lend his artistic and publishing assistance to Greensboro Urban Ministry’s struggling fundraiser, the Honor Card program. He created an image called Not Forgotten. It was warmly embraced and sold 5,000 cards, raising a record setting $52,000 for various outreach programs. During the Holiday Season, Honor Cards are available for a minimum donation of $5 each. Individuals who purchase Honor Cards send them to friends and family, indicating that they have been honored by a donation to a local outreach agency. All proceeds go directly to each agency.

Personally touched by the needs of the homeless, Bill has been an advocate, donating his artistic skills and publishing gifts to make The Honor Card program one of the most well run and leveraged charitable programs in the country. Within each beautiful painting is the subtle image and story of the needy. For 15 years, Bill personally underwrote the production of the Honor Card program. In that short period of time, more than $1,000,000 was raised for Greensboro Urban Ministry’s various programs to support the needy in that community. To date, over $4,400,000 has been raised to support homeless agencies in cities across North Carolina.
