Charitable Fund: Each year the Steamboat Ski & Resort Corporation's Charitable Fund awards special need based grants that are used solely for projects that benefit general charitable purposes or support non-profit organizations in special need.

Educational Scholarship Fund: The resort established an educational scholarship program during the 1996/1997 season. The scholarships are based on a written essay, academic achievement and school involvement, financial need and community service. The program awards students grants to pursue higher education. Previously awarded one-year scholarship recipients are eligible to reapply for additional scholarship grants. Since the program's inception 14 years ago, more than 185 graduates have benefited from $300,000 in scholarship funds.

Ski Corp. Environmental Fund: Steamboat is one of a handful of resorts nationally to establish a significant granting program based on environmental needs. Since its inaugural year in 2004, nearly 50 projects have been granted more than $240,000, representing a variety of nonprofit organizations across the Yampa Valley.
