Joen Greenwood Fund for the Chazen

Joen Greenwood

Joen E. Greenwood (’56, MA ’57) was a Wisconsin native and UW–Madison alumna who received her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in economics. She attended graduate school at the University of California at Berkley, where she received a Fulbright Scholarship to Cambridge University and studied economics at Newnham College. She went on to teach economics at Wellesley College for several years before becoming a consultant at Charles River Associates in Boston. Despite her departure from the Midwest, Greenwood maintained constant ties to her alma mater, serving on the Women’s Philanthropy Council of the University of Wisconsin Foundation, the University of Wisconsin Alumni Association Board of Directors, and as president of the WAA Greater Boston Chapter. Throughout her long career in finance, Greenwood sustained a strong commitment to the arts, particularly those created by female artists. She established the Joen Greenwood Fund for the Chazen to support “the purchase or exhibition of art created by contemporary women artists” or to fund publications.
