United in Service to Our Community Since 1910

The Woman's Club of Albany is one of the oldest not-for-profit community organizations in the Capital Region.  We donate to local organizations serving the needs of women and children, volunteer for a wide range of projects, and offer opportunities for new social, professional and community connections.

WCA donated over 150 bras to the Greater Capital Region YWCA BRAVA program.

WCA donates proceeds of a staged reading "A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant & A Prayer" to Equinox, Inc. Domestic Violence Services.

The WCA Winter Fundraiser donated to the HATAS Feed & Read Program to assist Albany school children

Hardworking WCA volunteers joined the Washington Park Conservancy for a clean up along Madison Avenue. 

Coronavirus Update

Now that our region has moved into Phase 4, the Woman's Club of Albany may resume use of the building, with certain restrictions in place. The house is scheduled for cleaning and sanitizing on July 13th, and after that committees can start using the house again for meetings.

The house is open for rentals, however, there is a maximum number of guests allowed per the Governor's guidelines.  Prospective renters should contact the Club at with any questions.

All members/visitors will be required to wear face masks. There will be a limited supply of masks available at the house, should a member/visitor forget to bring one.  Hand sanitizer will also be available.

$100 for 100 Years Campaign

THANK YOU to everyone who has responded to our $100 for 100 years appeal letter.  The loss of rentals has substantially impacted our budget for this forced period of closure.  Though we should be able to open the house again soon, we will continue to have mandated requirements with regard to the number of people allowed in the house and anticipate that rentals will be further impacted.  To date, we have received $5,000 in donations and that is a tremendous help. 

However, the $100 for 100 year appeal continues.  If you have been considering sending in a financial contribution to the WCA, please don't wait any longer.  All money received is placed in our general operating fund to keep the house running smoothly.  All donations, regardless of amount, are welcome and appreciated.

WCA Wins State Grant for Repair Work

Capping four years of diligent and very hard work by a band of dedicated members, the Woman’s Club of Albany has received a $148,500 state grant to help pay for long-awaited exterior repairs to our home.

The grant was awarded through the state’s Regional Economic Development Councils.

This is the third grant the WCA has received in recent months to help realize our goal of repairing the main entrance & front porch, stabilizing the side entrance, resolving water infiltration & installing a ramp to make the building handicap accessible. As we celebrate 100 years of home ownership, it is gratifying to know we can fulfill our mission as stewards of this beautiful house.
