We Give Back

m bagwell foundation

The M. Bagwell Foundation was established in loving memory of Amanda Lide Bagwell. Mandy’s generosity and talent are remembered with our mission to link charitable resources to community needs and opportunities.

More than anything, Mandy valued her family, art, and community. She dedicated herself to her three children: Hannon, John, and Margaret. She was generous with her time and talent in her hometown of Selma, AL and in Montgomery, AL where she resided.  While she built her art career, Mandy enjoyed success as a thriving retailer in Cloverdale.  We will always miss Mandy’s creativity, wit, charm and endless contributions to others.  

We look forward to many opportunities to honor and celebrate her beautiful, artsy life for many years to come.  Thank you for considering the M. Bagwell Foundation to memorialize or honor a loved one or to share with us in celebrating Mandy's life.

A portion of all mb greene sales is donated to the M. Bagwell Foundation each year.
