Emma Leggat has been the Head of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) for StubHub since 2012. In her two years with the company, she has personally overseen more than $2.7 million in philanthropic giving, primarily through Rising Stars, StubHub’s signature philanthropy program, which she launched in early 2013. Rising Stars today supports grassroots nonprofits throughout North America and Europe that are improving access and opportunity for at-risk youth through sports and the arts. As a result of her leadership, StubHub in 2014 unveiled its first ever self-produced benefit concert series, Next Stage, and is the only ticketing company to pledge to donate 100% of its proceeds on all charity benefit event ticket sales on its site. Emma brings more than 12 years of experience spanning the corporate and non-profit sectors.
