Our friends and #SweetSupporters at StubHub (virtually) sat down with our EVP of Development and Artist Relations, Aric Steinberg, to catch up on everything that's happened since the pandemic closed down the music industry.
Back when this all first started, StubHub identified 3 charities in the industry that were taking action and helping those that needed it. We are very grateful to have received a $25,000 grant from them, which made a great impact on our COVID-19 Fund that is helping musicians and music workers affected by concert/tour cancellations.
"The touring industry has been wiped out. There is a need for support well beyond just the medical financial assistance, with almost every individual in the industry seeing business slow or come to a complete halt. As such, we have had to pivot and our resources are being utilized in different ways - most non-profits in the music industry are going through the same thing. More funding is needed and we have had to pivot on our mission and strategy." -Aric Steinberg on how our community of nonprofits has been impacted.
