The Vail Valley Foundation has been dedicated to the Vail Valley since 1981, by producing arts, athletics and educational programs that benefit the community. The programs and events include the Teva Mountain Games. Vail International Dance Festival, USA Pro Cycling Challenge,Vilar Performing Arts Center, the American Ski Classic, and World Cup Ski Racing to major international events such as the 2001 World Mountain Bike Championships and upcoming 2015 World Alpine Ski Championships. In addition, the Vail Valley Foundation serves more than 2,500 children in Eagle County through education and enrichment programs ranging from pre-K thru college scholarships.
The VVF Staff is launching an employee fundraising campaign called the “Staff Summer Splash.” The goals of the campaign are threefold:
- To raise awareness of who The Vail Valley Foundation is and all that we do for this community
- To raise funds that are vital to keeping our many initiatives and programs alive.
- To engage in a friendly competition with fellow coworkers to see who comes out on top and wins the bragging rights.
We're super excited to be part of the VV-Funders team, and you can learn about us below:
I am the Development Officer for the Vilar Performing Arts Center and have with the VVF for 8 months. I’m originally from Ohio but have been living in the Vail Valley for more than 5 years. I appreciate being a part of an organization that has such a large, positive impact on our community in such diverse areas as arts, athletics and education.
I am the Interactive Marketing Coordinator for the VVF and have been with the Foundation for 1.5 years. I was born and raised in St. Louis, went to school in Nashville, and landed in the great state of Colorado 3 years ago. I am amazed at what the Vail Valley Foundation does year round, and enjoy most the stories told by our ambassadors on how the VVF has impacted their lives.
Thanks in advance for your support of the Vail Valley Foundation and for helping us continue to enrich the lives of the Vail Valley!
