Jim Kauffman Memorial Scholarship

Jim Kauffman -  Capuchino High School class of 1967, sadly passed last year...way too early. We want to do something that will help this very special person be remembered, and also provide a positive message not only for and from Capuchino High School, but to reflect the love and caring that Jim cultivated during his time at Stanford University playing football, rugby and running track, his time at MacArthur Park Restaurant...a lovely Palo Alto fine dining fixture, and just simply his journey  and travels through life!

Jerry Bruno and Mike Miller have presented to the Cap administration a proposal for a memorial scholarship in Jim's name. Our goal is to raise enough to pre-fund an annual $500 scholarship for as many years as possible. The goal of this campaign is to raise $15,000, or 30 years of a $500 scholarship per year.

We want this scholarship to reward a student athlete who personifies what Jim Kauffman "brought to the table"! More than just a gifted athlete, Jim was a consummate student,  leader, team player and someone who had the intangible and sincere ability to make those around him feel special, loved and cared about.

Please help us to bring  this project to fruition!
