Our mission is family--giving back through education to those who have given so much. The Johnny Mac Soldiers Fund honors service and sacrifice by providing education scholarships to veterans and military family members, particularly children of the fallen. Through education, we give back to those who gave. We give back to “Our Own.” It's the least we can do.
Since 2014, Johnny Mac Soldiers Fund has awarded $6 million in scholarships to veterans and military family members, especially children of the fallen or disabled. There are now over 700 Johnny Mac Scholars attending schools all over the country.
The fund is inspired by Colonel John "Johnny Mac" McHugh who made the ultimate sacrifice for his country. KIA while serving in Afghanistan on May 18, 2010, Johnny Mac is remembered as a leader, soldier, family man, friend.
