Prolific Philanthropy

Fortunately, LeBron James did not just shut up and play basketball. The NBA megastar, business owner, family man, and philanthropist, started the I Promise school in Akron, Ohio which is proving to deliver phenomenal results with students. The I Promise public school is working to bridge the resource, education, and expectation gap impacting Akron kids, by not only providing smaller class sizes and tutors for students, the school also connects with parents, offering beneficial resources like GED preparation, a food pantry and health services. James reflects an appreciation for public service over public relations with the I Promise school, where philanthropy is proving to have a prolific influence on the lives of children in Akron.
