The Charlie and Jan Taaffe Football Memorial Scholarship

This campaign ended on April 20, 2019, but you can still make a gift to The Citadel by clicking here!

In July of 2015, we sought to create a lasting legacy for Coach Taaffe by establishing an endowed athletic scholarship in Charlie and Jan’s name. Our vision for this scholarship was to link Coach Taaffe with the proud tradition he brought to Citadel Football and to each of us and that vision continues to be our mission today. 

While we took great strides to make this happen, we are currently sitting at just under $6,000 from reaching the minimum $25,000 needed to officially begin rewarding funds. Ideally, we would love to be able to start awarding this scholarship starting this Fall! 

I’m challenging this group to hit the $25,000 goal by April 20th, Coach Taaffe’s 69th birthday. We are so close and with your support we can finish this last 400 strong! Let’s get this done!

If you have any questions, you can call or e-mail Catherine Lee with The Citadel Brigadier Foundation at (843) 953-5278 and
