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’ 40,000 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
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 2019, over 170 students applied for an EpicPromise Scholars Grant and 43 students were awarded scholarships across our Vail Resorts communities. These 2019 scholars will join the 40 students awarded this grant in 2018. Each student demonstrates academic achievement, a commitment to the local community and leadership in extracurricular activities. Congratulations to all!
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.
We believe that education is never truly over and that the greatest minds never stop learning. The EpicPromise Employee Foundation awards Vail Resorts employees with Educational Ascent Grants of up to US$2,500 to pursue their dreams and continue schooling or vocational training.
If you would like to help Vail Resorts employees, please consider making a donation to the EpicPromise Foundation. Or if you find yourself or a co-worker in need of assistance, learn more about how to fill out a Foundation application or nomination.
