Anne Morris Greenwood


After a 30-year corporate accounting career with major Fortune 500 companies, Anne Morris Greenwood of Carnegie retired and turned her lifelong passion—philanthropy—into her vocation. Growing up in a small farming community, Greenwood experienced firsthand the importance of philanthropy daily as she witnessed neighbor helping neighbor, deeply rooting “service to others” as the guiding principle of her life. She began her philanthropic journey in the 1970s, supporting major national charities. Over time she developed her focus on improving access to higher education and the performing arts. As a result, she has touched thousands of students spanning five decades.

She began by establishing an endowed scholarship at Oklahoma State University for students from her alma mater—Carnegie High School. Over the next two decades she established and supported multiple scholarships, eventually spanning all disciplines of study. Greenwood believes that every student, regardless of their situation, should have access to higher education. She also has funded several major facility updates on the OSU campus to better serve students, including the Edmon Low Library Greenwood Reading Room, Wesley Center Student Activity Hall, Greenwood Center for Online Excellence, Greenwood Tennis Center, and, to improve performing arts access, the McKnight Center for the Performing Arts and the Greenwood School of Music.

Greenwood’s awards and honors include induction to the OSU Hall of Fame and the OSU Spears School of Business Hall of Fame, an OSU Honorary Doctor of Letters degree, and named Philanthropist of the Year by Women for OSU.
