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 Good Books for Good Works to Arbor Hill Elementary School Library. 

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. 

Please join us at A Community Conversation

Wednesday, October 23rd

6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

At our second Community Conversation, we will once again host representatives of not-for-profit organizations, city and state government, WCA supporters, and interested members — like you. We’ll introduce our dual mission of philanthropy and preservation of the WCA’s historic building, talk about the impact the WCA has on the stability and economic development of the neighborhood, and discuss the many avenues of community need and service in the Capital Region. We’re hoping that the Community Conversation will help us plan how to best serve the organizations we work with. If you would like an invitation sent to a not-for-profit or individual, please forward their contact information to the Woman's Club of Albany.

Good Books for Good Works

November 6th

5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

This will be the WCA’s 14th annual “Good Books for Good Works.” Once again, our partner is Book House of Stuyvesant Plaza, whose wonderful booksellers provide short and snappy reviews of their favorite books in time for the holidays, birthdays and the long winter months to come. Proprietor Susan Novotny sets aside 20% of all books sales to patrons who want to participate in Good Books and turns that into a gift certificate to an at-risk public elementary school library in the Capital Region. This year’s recipient will be the Carroll Hill School in Troy.
