NBA Cares

Make a donation to the NBA Cares global community outreach initiative in My Player mode.  

In the My Player menu, go to "My Purchase" Under activities look for Charitable contribution. NBA Cares is one of the charities you are able to select. It will cost you $329k (in first year)
*Charitable contributions will cost 20% of your yearly salary, so it is best to do this in your first year.
*If you do not want to waste your money, turn autosave off, donate to charity, unlock achievement and reload save to keep your money.*

Maybe 80 MSPs and you get an avatar shirt ? Like Bungie did? That'd be great.

Looking at all the purchase achievements I'm guessing there will be an in game salary for your my player.

At #3 Yes that's how I figure it's going to work. LOL at #1 & #2 they wouldn't have you spend your real money and plus it says in My Player mode.

yeah, you use your SP (skill points). this cheevo is pretty cool though (all the other are repeats pretty much) but still buying it.

Even if it required actual purchase........ join Bing Rewards. 500 points on Bing Rewards gets you a 400 point Microsoft card. You can use that instead of spending real money. I think they start you out with 250 points for joining anyway. And at 10 points a day plus extras, it will take less than 25 days to get to 500.

its in-game currency guys, every 14 days during the season u get a paycheck based on ur current contract...u can buy skill points, etc. I believe the NBA Cares donation was $ save up that much, buy it, and Cheevo unlocked

Just turn Auto Save off. It's a life saver in My Player especially with an achievement like this. Saved before donation --> Donated --> Quit --> Loaded My Player back up without any original money missing.

before making the purchase, save your My Player...then purchase it, back out, then re-load your save...that way you get the achievement but you wont lose your money!

I bought the NBA Cares thing and the achievement never popped up. Tried it multiple times loading from my save and still nothing.
