Kobe launched The Mamba Sports Academy in 2018 with Chad Faulkner but the facility changed its name out of respect. The Mamba & Mambacita Sports Foundation is the charitable organization linked to the Academy. Vanessa announced on social media that the name was updated to add “Mambacita” after their death “Because there is no #24 without #2,” adding “Our mission remains the same – and stronger than ever – to provide opportunities to young people through sports. Thank you all for the outpouring of support and your kind donations to date as we carry forth Kobe and Gigi’s legacy.. We hope to empower young athletes in a world they left us all to help shape. ”
