Capital City Fund

Capital City Fund Collage

We want to thank all of our sponsors and vendors for baring with us over the past year.  We are looking forward to getting this event back to normal in 2022.  

About the Capital City Fund

The Capital City Fund was created in 2014 by Mayor Kathy Sheehan, as a way to help nonprofit organizations better serve the people of Albany with effective, innovative programs and services.

Grants are awarded in the following areas:

Community/Cultural: programs and services that involve a direct benefit to residents, such as the enhancement of a park or the sponsoring of a parade or community event

Arts: programs that involve any creative expression, such as music, dance exhibits, or public art projects

Educational: learning opportunities for youth and/or adults

Caring for and appropriately recognizing our Veterans is also a matter that is very important to Mayor Kathy Sheehan. Since its inception, The Capital City Fund has been providing funding to Veterans organizations for the Veterans and Memorial Day Parades, the Gold Star Families luncheon, and the purchase of flags used to honor the resting places of Albany County veterans every Memorial Day. 

Proceeds from the annual Tulip Ball benefit the Capital City Fund and independent donations are also welcome at any time.  

We hope you will join us in contributing to this wonderful cause that allows the City of Albany to continue honoring our Veterans and providing grants to Albany-based nonprofit organizations for innovative programs and services in the areas of community and culture, arts, and education.
