Emmanuel College is one of 140 local nonprofits to receive grants of $100,000 to $500,000 each through the Cummings Foundation’s $25 Million Grant Program.
Roberto Clemente Field, located in Boston's Back Bay Fens, serves as Emmanuel's home field, as well as an important community recreational resource.
In 2009, Emmanuel College and the Yawkey Foundation, in partnership with the city of Boston, contributed $4 million to restore the historic, city-owned Roberto Clemente Field, an important community athletic resource in the Back Bay Fens, across the street from Emmanuel's campus.
The complex features:
The field serves as home field for Emmanuel College softball, men's and women's soccer and lacrosse teams, as well as the practice facility for men's and women's track and field.
