The Marilyn P. Kauffman Golf Course Enrichment Fund has been created by the family and friends of Marilyn Kauffman. This fund has been established in loving memory of Marilyn and pays tribute to her passion for, and dedication to, the Golf Course and the University of Maryland. The “Kauffman Fund” will support the operation, enhancement and programmatic efforts of the University Golf Course Staff.

Marilyn understood the important role the Golf Course plays in the local community, not only as a place to play a good game of golf and have a drink or meal, but also as a place to socialize, learn, relax and refresh the soul. The Marilyn P. Kaufman Fund will be endowed upon reaching the University of Maryland College Park Foundation endowment requirements and pay lasting tribute to the memory of Marilyn.


Marilyn Kauffman, mother of two, was heavily involved within the University of Maryland campus and community. Starting in 1988 she worked with the University of Maryland “Terps” Service, eventually retiring in 2003 before returning to work for the University System of Maryland. Marilyn was an avid Maryland sports fan, regularly attending football and basketball games along with her sons. She even made a trip to cheer on the Terps during their Gator Bowl victory in 2004. A member of the University of Maryland Golf Course since 1988, Marilyn continued her dedication to UM by serving on the Advisory Committee. She is survived by her two sons, Jeffrey and Scott Kauffman, both of whom are University of Maryland graduates. Marilyn will be greatly missed by the University of Maryland family.
