Impact since January 2016
Our mission is to provide the Experience of a Lifetime to our guests and that starts with our employees. What makes Vail Resorts such an amazing company are the people who work here. The EpicPromise Employee Foundation is a public charity designed to support Vail Resorts’ 38,000 employees by providing them pathways to stability and success. The EpicPromise Foundation is funded by an annual US$500,000 contribution from Vail Resorts, as well as through additional donations made by Vail Resorts employees and guests.
MEET SOME OF OUR GRANT RECIPIENTS
The EpicPromise Employee Foundation is here for employees during a moment of need. Through the Emergency Relief program, employees can receive financial assistance for unplanned, emergency scenarios including medical and illness expenses, bereavement costs, or home and property damages such as a fire or flood.
EPIC PROMISE SCHOLARS
We support the educational ambitions of the children of Vail Resorts employees through the EpicPromise Scholars Grant, a multi-year scholarship for post-secondary education. Each student receiving this honor is eligible for a grant of US$2,500 for each year of their post-secondary degree program. In 2018, over 160 students applied for an EpicPromise Scholars Grant. Across Vail Resorts' mountain communities, 40 students were awarded scholarships to the collective tune of US$335,000 in 2018. The 2018 scholars will join the 20 students awarded this grant in 2017. Each student demonstrates academic achievement, a commitment to the local community and leadership in extracurricular activities. Congratulations to all!
