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 to improving conditions in the City of Albany. Those involved in the recent renaissance of the Club have expanded its mission to include maintaining an organized center for cooperation among women in the Capital District "for civic, literary and charitable works. The Club fulfills this mission by heightening public awareness of the historical, social and legal movements of women, and by promoting service and philanthropy. This includes raising funds for charitable organizations that serve needy members of our community, particularly underprivileged children and families in the Capital Region.
