We are Family
When a longtime Akron landmark joins the Foundation’s growing family, the possibilities for our students and families are endless. 

The LeBron James Family Foundation and The Tangier recently announced a long-term partnership that will see Akron’s leading creative event center become a community space for the I PROMISE students and families. As part of this collaboration, the upper deck of Tangier’s spacious parking structure will be converted into a multi-use sports complex complete with basketball courts, play areas, and interactive outdoor spaces, made possible in part by a donation from the DICK’S Sporting Goods Foundation. The innovative space will be the future site of I PROMISE School physical education classes and other school assemblies as well as outdoor family gatherings. 
Inside The Tangier, the renowned ballroom will be the future site of the Foundation’s monthly HomeTown Hall events presented by The J.M. Smucker Company, a staple of the Foundation’s “We Are Family” programming. These regular gatherings bring together the I PROMISE students and all of their family members to share a meal, information, and conversation to ensure constant communication and connection across the community. 
Located within walking distance of the I PROMISE School and just blocks away from the upcoming I PROMISE Village and I PROMISE Housing, the community space at The Tangier represents another important and accessible resource for the Foundation’s families. 
As our family grows, our big plans, hopes and dreams for all of them continue to grow as well. 
And we have more coming!
We Are Family.
