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.
Curious about the WCA? Please fill out this form to learn more. Our accomplishments and goals are presented in our Annual Report, available on the right.
This month we will hear from Capital Region Menstrual Health (CRMH) which works to bring period products directly to under-resourced communities through a network of trusted community-based organizations and their period pantries. Period Pantries are small, free, weather-protected containers that house a multitude of menstrual hygiene products and are accessible 24/7 to anyone in need.
The WCA will collect menstrual product donations that evening to support CRMH. Please consider donating all types of unused menstrual products, including pads, tampons or menstrual cups. Heavy flow and overnight items are preferable if possible.
WCA Hosts a Century of Women in Jazz
Friday, March 8 -- 7 p.m.
Celebrate Women’s History Month and a century of women in jazz as Wingspan brings a program of all-women jazz composers to the Woman’s Club of Albany.
This free program is arranged by the Albany Musicians Association and sponsored by the Music Performance Trust Fund. Wingspan is a jazz quintet.
The performance will be held in the upstairs ballroom and followed by a reception on the first floor. Please note that the second floor of the building is not ADA accessible.
According to WCA President Monica Trabold, “This event is a wonderful way for the Woman’s Club to open its doors to the community in celebration of women’s history and great music.”
Join us at a festive reception to recognize leaders, members, contributors and community service partners who have renewed the vitality of The Woman’s Club over these past 20 years. Whether you have been involved for 20 years or 20 days, YOU are part of this wonderful story:
From 3 elderly members to nearly 200 members of diverse ages and backgrounds.
From a house in need of major repairs to a safe, accessible, beautiful home.
From wondering how we could help our neighbors to serving many community groups with hands-on work, donation of goods and funding.
Community Service at Work
WCA Community Service Committee members filled holiday bags for FOCUS food pantry families.
Members generously donated over 100 children's books for Grassroot Givers to provide to migrant children.
WCA Community Service Committee members volunteered with the Street Soldiers of Albany distributing items donated by WCA members at a recent Street Soldiers event in downtown Albany to assist the homeless.
The long-awaited front porch project is nearly done. The accessibility ramp is complete with safety railings installed. Our iconic porch pillars, porch ceiling and front and side windows have been repaired, thanks to additional generous donations. The custom-order lighting for which we've been waiting so long will be added along the ramp soon.
We're focusing next on repairs to the side porch, off of our newly paved driveway. Updated bids are being sought for the porch work. Thanks to all who generously donated to this capital improvement effort on Giving Tuesday 2023.
Stay tuned for further updates about when we can “Light Up the Ramp."
