A donation in the amount of $10,000 was presented to the Fort Vancouver National Trust during its Board of Directors meeting on Tuesday, September 6. The gift was from the Honorable Frank L. and Arlene G. Price Foundation, and presented by Foundation Executive Director, Kay Dalke/Sheadel.

"The Trust's historic preservation work represents one of the three areas the Price Foundation supports," said Dalke/Sheadel. The Foundation serves nonprofits within Clark and Cowlitz counties.

Arlene Price grew up in Vancouver, and was a graduate of Vancouver High School in 1943. She later became an art teacher in Kelso, where she met her husband, Frank, who obtained his law degree after serving as a Naval officer in WWII. He was a superior court judge in Cowlitz County for several years.

There are times when an exceptional opportunity arises for an organization that not only contributes significantly to its mission, but also provides tremendous community benefit. The Trust's agreement with the Hidden brothers to acquire the Academy is clearly such a circumstance.


There is no more important historic structure in the region, if not the Northwest, and the connection between the Fort Vancouver National Site, Mother Joseph and the Academy is deeply intertwined. Accordingly, while our campaign to raise $16 million in a year for the acquisition and restoration of the Academy is ambitious, the importance of the undertaking is undeniable.


With the Trust's extensive experience in managing, restoring and preserving the historic buildings on Officers Row and in the West Barracks, we are uniquely suited to incorporate the Academy in our operations. Based on the Trust's record of sustainable property management and development, we know that the Academy's future will be well secured.
