2017: The pair launched philanthropic ventures.
In 2017, Savannah launched Akron: Women of Our Future, a mentorship program for high-school girls at her alma mater, Buchtel Community Learning Center.
Together with her husband, she continued their ongoing philanthropic ventures with the LeBron James Family Foundation back-to-school orientation to provide support for at-risk students. In 2018, with the support of the foundation, LeBron opened the I Promise School, a public elementary school in Akron, Ohio.
“If there’s nothing more you can do for a child, just constantly encourage them and set them on the right path when it comes to sports or their schoolwork or nurturing a hobby — with whatever it is,” Savannah told Vogue in 2017. “Just be a constant source of encouragement. That’s what LeBron talks about — never give up.”
