About Us

About Us

At the Roberto Clemente Foundation, we believe that anyone can be a hero. This isn’t just a memorial to a great athlete’s memory, it’s a living breathing community devoted to “Building Nations of Good.”

“It’s been such a privilege to watch this foundation grow over the years. It’s exciting to see my father’s vision and dream go out into the world as we develop the Clemente family tradition of giving and caring. We hope you will join us in making new opportunities for those who need it most, in our mission to build nations of good around the world.”

Our mission is to promote positive change and community engagement through the example and inspiration of Roberto. We believe he would rather be honored with service to the world, rather than simple commemoration.

"Any time you have an opportunity to make a difference in this world and you don't, then you are wasting your time on Earth". - Roberto Clemente Walker

THE FOUNDATION

Roberto Clemente Jr.

Family Leadership

We couldn’t be prouder to have the privilege of carrying Roberto’s legacy into the future. He was always committed to serving the next generation, the people he so famously advocated for all his life. His commitment to the wellbeing and elevation of children and the poor is an example for all of us. The Roberto Clemente Foundation is a family business, not just for Clementes but for anyone who joins with us in building nations of good. Please consider making a donation to our continuing work to provide relief to the suffering and spread Roberto’s spirit far and wide.
