Philanthropic Projects

Ray Skillman Ford and Southside Hyundai are proud to partner with many amazing national and local organizations to better enrich the lives of people involved.

Some of the organizations and programs we support include:


Clothe-A-Child is a Christmas Tradition at Ray Skillman Auto Group. Throughout the year the staff elects to contribute a dollar amount each week, at the end of the year the cumulative amount is matched by Ray Skillman himself.  With the help of employees and community members, we shop and wrap gifts for over 1200 children in Central Indiana.

Hyundai Hope On Wheels

Since 1998, Hyundai Hope On Wheels has made it their mission to help find a cure for childhood cancer and support the families in the fight. If you would like to support we ask that you join us by making a donation to Hyundai Hope On Wheels. This ensures we can continue to fund lifesaving research.  Ray Skillman Southside Hyundai had the opportunity to be part of a donation to Indianapolis’s very own Reily Children’s Hospital donation back in 2010.
