Johnny Mac Soldiers Fund

Giving Back Through Education

Mercedes-Benz and our dealers are proud partners

of the Johnny Mac Soldiers Fund.

How We Help

For every Mercedes-Benz vehicle sold in the U.S. holiday season, the company will make a donation to the Johnny Mac

Soldiers Fund, which helps provide eligible military children

with college scholarships and other college assistance.

Why we help

Time and again, America’s military members and their families

are asked to give of themselves for the rest of us. While they

ask little in return, we owe them so much.

Who we help

Mercedes-Benz USA Dealers are honoring fallen members of

the U.S. Armed Forces by lifting their children up.

Who was Johnny Mac?

Col. John McHugh, a member of the U.S. Army for 24 years,

was killed in action on May 18, 2010, in Kabul, Afghanistan.

His fellow West Point classmates then joined together to ensure

that his five children would receive a college education.

In 2014, that effort grew into the Johnny Mac Soldiers Fund.

The results

To date, the Johnny Mac Soldiers Fund has awarded over

1,000 scholarships totaling $7.5 million, and growing.
