Last year, Vail Resorts contributed over $7 million in cash and product to over 250 non profit partners in our resort communities. In Eagle County, where Vail is located, contributions will total over $2.1 million for 2015. Through a voluntary guest donation program, over $3 million has been raised for 30 non-profit partners and 62 projects in Colorado and Lake Tahoe through partnerships with The National Forest Foundation and The Tahoe Fund.
Vail employees volunteer more than 20,000 hours annually to projects around the world. Our Epic Volunteer program gives up to 50 employees every year 40 hours of paid time to work with a charity of their choice. From our backyards to countries like Nepal, Honduras, Mexico, and Borneo, Vail Resorts employees are making a difference all over the world.
