Recipient Background

Congratulations to LEIGH STEINBERG for receiving the Legendary Philanthropist Award at our 2022 Be Great! Humanitarian Awards.

Leigh is well-known for being the real agent who inspired the Oscar-winning movie Jerry Maguire but in addition to being a fabled premier sports agent, he is also an accomplished entrepreneur, best-selling author, and the Chairman of Leigh Steinberg Sports and Entertainment Holdings. Leigh is illustrious for his work building athletes into stand-alone brands. He has represented many of the most successful athletes and coaches in football, basketball, baseball, hockey, boxing, and golf, including the number one overall pick in the NFL draft for an unprecedented eight times in conjunction with 64 total first-round picks. With an unrivaled history of record-setting contracts, he has secured over $4 billion for his 300+ pro-athlete clients and directed more than $800 million to various charities around the world. 

Over the course of his career, Leigh has been featured on numerous national television programs and has been highly profiled in a host of magazines but what we are most impressed with is his parallel level of success as a philanthropist. Leigh has raised over $1 Billion dollars for countless other charities and causes. He has been named Man of the Year over 12 times for philanthropy, he has personally funded over a dozen different charitable programs, and he has voluntarily donated his time & skills to help others for five decades. Currently, Leigh is passionate about raising awareness and resources for anti-racism and hatred, ethnic diversity, concussion damage prevention, and sporting green alliance programs, among his many other Humanitarian efforts.
