Save Our Small Businesses (SOSb)

Donation protected
Small businesses are vital to our economy and to the quality of life in our communities. As COVID-19 precautions continue to roll-out, many of them are now forced to close their doors. CVP ( is a Washington DC-based consulting and technology company and we want to help small businesses in the areas where we do business.  Like all of you, we are worried for our local delis & lunch stops, bookstores, gyms, and other mom-and-pop stores we rely on every day.

Please consider donating to support the businesses listed below, and thank you for your donation! Supporting these businesses now and when things return to normal will help keep them going.  Initially, we are focusing our efforts on DC-MD-VA, Lakewood, CO, and Kansas City, MO, areas where most of our business is located. Please note your donation is not intended to qualify for a federal income tax deduction.

Your donations, combined with those of CVP and our 450+ employees, will allow CVP to distribute grants of up to $2,500 per month for up to 3 months to help these businesses with expenses such as utility bills, capital leases, rent or mortgage payments, or similar expenses.  As your donations come in, we expect to ramp up the number of businesses we can help as well as the size of the grants.

*Please note the beneficiaries of this campaign are the small businesses who have applied and have been accepted to receive funds. Sally Canatsey is the administrator of this page. Donations will be distributed by Abdullah Monawer, CVP VP of Accounting and Finance, through a dedicated SOSb Relief Fund bank account. 

Want to refer a local business? Are you a small business that could use some help? Applications to receive funds can be found here . We'll continue to help as long as we have funds to distribute. Every dollar we raise will go to help a business with a bill they must pay to maintain the ability to serve their customers when the crisis abates.
