In 2011, our founder, Dave Cantin, was diagnosed with leukemia. After undergoing five years of treatment, he is now thankfully cancer-free. Since then, Dave has made giving a cornerstone of his life and the company. In 2017 he founded DCG Giving, a 501c3 dedicated to benefiting communities, charities, and causes in need of financial support. In addition to working alongside some of the most prestigious pediatric cancer programs, services, and research centers through our partner Hope & Heroes, DCG Giving also supports our dealership clients’ dedication to their local communities by donating to the charities and causes that are important to them.


Giving is part of our DNA. We give because we feel a responsibility to help those in need move forward and to support our clients in the dealership community who have always championed their own local causes.  

DCG donates a portion of all company revenue to support pediatric cancer through our partnership with the Hope & Heroes nonprofit organization. We give back a portion of our fees for each deal, donating as directed by our dealership clients to the organizations and causes that are important to them.  

By fulfilling our purpose and helping our dealership clients fulfill theirs, together we make an impact that can be felt nationwide

Making a difference in the lives of others is a mission of DCG. Giving back is a key component of our brand.

Our mission is bigger than you could imagine. Every single one of our successful outcomes helps to enrich the communities of the dealers we serve. Each map marker shows the location of a local organization DCG Giving has helped. Every acquisition means tangible results, and positive change, for kids, families, and their communities all throughout the US.

We are not just another organization giving back. It’s not about doing good because it’s “good for business”. Our purpose is the reason for all our work.

Our donations have supported these prestigious organizations and others:
