Two months ago, as the Covid-19 pandemic was spreading across America, Verizon kicked off the Pay It Forward livestream series to benefit small business relief efforts with a performance by Dave Matthews, direct from his home.

Tonight, Matthews does it again. As part of their DMB Drive-In Series, the Dave Matthews Band is dedicating a concert, sponsored by Verizon, entirely to LISC. All donations made during the broadcast at 8 p.m. tonight, May 27, will help us ramp up our rapid relief efforts for small businesses all across America, especially women-, minority- and veteran-owned enterprises in underinvested places that have been hardest hit by the crisis.

We can’t wait to tune in, crank it up and watch the full live performance from May 14, 2019 at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines, IA. We hope you’ll join us, and donate what you can, for the benefit of America’s small business community.
