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.
