SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. — Vail Resorts EpicPromises recently announced recipients of the 2019-2020 community grants cycle.

Seventy-six local non-profit organizations received $2.8 million in grant support. The grants are aimed at supporting issues that matter most to the Lake Tahoe area.

“Since day one of SOS Outreach over 25 years ago, Vail Resorts EpicPromise has demonstrated a dedication to the community unlike anyone else,” said Seth Ehrlich, Executive Director of SOS Outreach in a press release. “What’s truly unique about our partnership is the ability to engage Vail Resorts employees across all departments toward one goal – helping SOS Outreach youth gear up for life through mentoring outdoors. The strength of our partnership and dedication and passion of every Vail Resorts employee makes our mission possible and reflects the communities that we call home.”

The grant decisions are made locally by Tahoe employees. These employees volunteer to serve on the local giving council.

Across North America, Vail Resorts EpicPromise community investment focuses on youth and the environment. Throughout the company, Vail Resorts will give $14 million in support to more than 350 community non-profits throughout the upcoming year.
