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 more than 150 bras to the Greater Capital Region YWCA BRAVA program.

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

Both the WCA and the community benefit from our annual garage sale, staffed by our member-volunteers. 

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

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.
