About The Woman's Club of Albany
Founded in 1910, the Woman’s Club of Albany began as a civic organization dedicated to helping women and children, and improving conditions in the City of Albany. With the recent renaissance of the Club, its mission has been expanded to maintain an organized historical center for women in the Capital Region by educating and heightening awareness about the historical, social and legal movements of women; and to promote service and philanthropy including charitable fundraising and donation for those in need in our community, particularly underprivileged children and families in the Capital Region.
