Amethyst Women’s Circle


AWC Logo

Throughout history, the amethyst has symbolized stability, peace, balance, courage, inner strength and sincerity. These virtues perfectly represent what we hope the Amethyst Women’s Circle provides students as they begin their college journey.

As a gem must be polished and cared for to really shine, students must be treated in the same fashion. Dreams and goals only become a reality when barriers are lessened through the efforts of individuals like yourself.

And what a powerful dream it is to graduate from college.

It’s proven time and time again that education is the difference maker in the lives of people of all ages, genders, ethnicities and backgrounds.

Education has been shown to break the cycles of homelessness, poverty, and domestic abuse. Education enriches our communities by promoting literacy, improving public health, and spurring economic growth and prosperity. In addition, nothing helps close the gender gap more than an education.

Who We Are

The Amethyst Women’s Circle is an empowered group of women with energy and enthusiasm, creatively supporting the mission of the OCCC Foundation, pursuing avenues to provide scholarships benefitting first-generation students who otherwise cannot afford to attend college.

Our Goal

The goal of the Amethyst Women’s Circle is to gather women from around the Oklahoma City metropolitan area to join a special group with the mission of providing scholarships to first-generation students at Oklahoma City Community College that will have a transformative impact on students’ lives.


Joining the Amethyst Women’s Circle is simple.  Membership for the Amethyst Women’s Circle is an annual tax-deductible donation of $1,000 to the OCCC Foundation.

Amethyst members may donate in full or in semi-annually, quarterly or monthly payments. Donate and join!
