About the vail valley foundation

SINCE 1981, 

the nonprofit Vail Valley Foundation has been bringing big ideas to life. In education, we operate YouthPower365. In athletics, we are the event producers for the GoPro Mountain Games and Xfinity Birds of Prey. In arts, we operate the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater in Vail and the Vilar Performing Arts Center in Beaver Creek, as well as the Vail Dance Festival. Additionally, we bring together local government, individuals and businesses to achieve great things in our community.


In the arts, we ensure that the broadest spectrum of the performing arts has a place in and is accessible to all in our community.  


In athletics, we showcase our unique mountain lifestyle to a global audience, drive economic vitality, and expose our guests, locals, and youth to incredible experiences that they may not otherwise receive.


From early childhood to college and career, the Vail Valley Foundation’s YouthPower365 provides programs to help youth reach their full potential. We support youth and families every step of the way.


To provide leadership in arts, athletics, and education and address community needs to enhance our Valley as a place to live, work, and visit.


An extraordinary mountain community with quality of life for all.
