StubHub is a company that truly understands the “season of giving”. In keeping with its commitment to supporting arts education, the online ticket marketplace recently launched a donation campaign with the aim of raising funds for three grassroots music organizations that support music education.
Through the campaign, each download of the StubHub Music app will result in a $1 donation to one of the following arts organizations:
- The Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation: http://music.stubhub.com/mhopus
- VH1 Save the Music Foundation: http://music.stubhub.com/stm
The Roots of Music: http://music.stubhub.com/roots
Each download of StubHub’s free app, StubHub Music, through one of the above links will result in a $1 donation to the organization through January 31, 2015. The StubHub Music app enables users to find information on when their favorite artists are playing and where, discover new music, buy tickets, and more. What better way for StubHub to give back than by matching donations to the organizations that support the next generation of musicians?
Emma Leggat, StubHub’s Head of Corporate Social Responsibility, spoke about the 1 for 1 campaign: “By enabling music fans to access StubHub’s new concert discovery app while directly supporting music education–the very future of music–our 1 for 1 campaign is just one of many ways StubHub is channeling our audience and our technology to support causes that matter”.
The campaign is an expansion of StubHub’s standing commitment to arts education: since 2012 nearly $1 million has been allocated to arts non profits that are dedicated to music education. The company also has an ongoing relationship with The Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation, and launched the Next Stage Concert Series last April in order to bring more musical instruments to students around the country.
