Black Women's Association of Albany
About Us
The Black Women's Association of Albany (BWAA) was founded on September 21, 1977 by a group of women, many who were not native Albanians. The purpose was to stimulate political and social awareness, encourage cultural growth, help youth realize their full potential through education and serve as positive role models for African American women. After a period of inactivity, the BWAA reorganized in the spring of 2004 and will continue its service to the greater Capital District community.

OUR MISSION is to:

  • Assist African American youth to realize their educational potential by encouraging and supporting their academic pursuits through the awarding of higher education scholarships;
  • Provide opportunities for youth to prepare for future careers;
  • Support a family in need;
  • Work with other human service agencies and civic organizations;
  • Serve as positive role models for African American women;
  • Raise funds for scholarships and other activities.
