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 generous 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 up to $10,000 USD. In 2021 more than 170 students applied for an EpicPromise Scholars Grant and 41 students were awarded scholarships across our Vail Resorts communities. Each student demonstrates academic achievement, a commitment to the local community and leadership in extracurricular activities. Congratulations to all!
EMPLOYEE HARDSHIP GRANTS
The EpicPromise Employee Foundation is here for employees during a moment of need. Through the Employee Hardship program, employees can receive financial assistance for unplanned hardships, including medical and illness expenses, bereavement costs, or home and property damages due to 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. If you find yourself or a co-worker in need of assistance, learn more about how to fill out a Foundation application or nomination.
