At Vail Resorts, we strive to provide our guests with an Experience of a Lifetime. However, it is only by each and every one of our employees working together to provide an Experience of a Lifetime to one another, day in and day out, that allows us to do what we’re passionate about and what makes Vail Resorts what it is today. To that end, we are announcing an easier way to support each other. The EpicPromise Foundation supports Vail Resorts employees and their families.
What is the EpicPromise Foundation?
The EpicPromise Foundation supports all Vail Resorts employees and their families. The Foundation will provide $750,000 annually via grants in two key areas:
- Lending a Hand - Emergency relief grants due to unpredictable life setbacks, such as a medical issue, home disaster or other triggers
- Educational Dreams - Coming later in 2016! Scholarships for employees and their kids in a variety of areas

How does the Foundation work?
Vail Resorts will commit $500,000 this year and every year moving forward. In addition to the company's annual contribution, employees will also have the opportunity to voluntarily contribute to the mission of helping other employees (see below). In fact, CEO Rob Katz is one of those employees who has wanted to find a way to personally give back to employees and has made a personal contribution of US$1.5M.
