Hyundai of Cool Springs does much more that sell cars to customers that live throughout greater Nashville, Tennessee. We believe in the philosophy that it is better to give than to receive. Our Hyundai dealership commits to establishing an indelible impact on the community by contributing to several different charities. Perhaps no other mission has more impact on the Nashville community than the Hyundai Hope on Wheels campaign.


Hyundai Hope on Wheels


Since 1998, Hyundai Hope on Wheels has tackled head on the ravages of childhood cancer. The foundation raises money for research into the causes and treatments of a wide variety of pediatric cancers. From donating funds to pediatric research facilities to recruiting Nashville, TN area celebrities to promote pediatric cancer fundraising campaigns, Hyundai Hope of Wheels promotes awareness of pediatric cancer issues. Childhood cancer does not only affect the children; it also impacts siblings, parents, and members of a child's extended family. Children cannot fight the lengthy battle against cancer by themselves. They need help from foundations, such as the Hyundai Hope on Wheels foundation for financial, as well as emotional support.


How Hyundai of Cool Spings Contributes to Hope on Wheels


The loyal, lifelong customers that visit Hyundai of Cool Springs understand that our Nashville dealership has made an indelible impact on the community. Our Franklin, Tennessee dealership recently announced a program that helps children struggling with cancer. Our pediatric cancer fundraising campaign employs a novel approach to raising money for kids by involving our good friends from greater Nashville. For every vehicle that we sell from our large lot of new and used cars, Hyundai of Cool Springs donates $18 towards the fight against pediatric cancer. The novel approach to fundraising makes it a collaboration between Hyundai of Cool Springs and our loyal customers to stem the tide of cancer that afflicts far too many children.

Monroe Carell Jr, Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt


The money raised by Hyundai of Cool Springs helps defray some of the pediatric cancer patient costs incurred at renowned medical centers such as the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt.
