Donors - Click Here

  If you are a potential or present donor to our amazing organization, you're in the perfect place to help us achieve our mission in this critical time!   In the ecosystem of Portland and beyond, CreativeCares is a vital matchmaker for symbiotic relationships between creative volunteers and nonprofit organizations in need. As a small nonprofit, working behind the scenes in the creative and nonprofit communities, we're often asked how people can support us and where their support goes. Every dollar you donate goes to offset the time and cost it takes to facilitate the nonprofit projects, find the best volunteers, maintain our online presence and continue to do the daily work required to keep CreativeCares at the forefront of creative philanthropy.   Although we accomplish tremendous things through the incredible generousity of our volunteers, there is a cost in both time and expense to do such meaningful work! If you'd like support our cause on a one time or reoccurring donation model, we've made it incredibly easy for you to do so. By clicking the yellow "Donate" button above, you will be directed to our secure donation page. Thank you for supporting CreativeCares!   If you have any questions, thoughts, or ideas, please do not hesitate to contact us at hello@creativecares.org   You can also find us on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Vimeo, and YouTube by following the icons below.       

Hello everyone,

It pains me to say, with much sadness and trepidation, that CreativeCares will be going on hiatus.
Our organization faces challenges in funding and resources, while personally, I find it necessary to focus on other personal and professional needs. 

It has been a remarkable three and a half years and I certainly hope to continue the valuable work we've been doing in the communities we serve. When our situation improves, I will happily announce to the world that we are once again resuming our mission.

If you have any questions, concerns or comments, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.

We wish you all the best in your endeavors as Creatives and Nonprofit Organizations. Thank you for contributing to the greater good and being an important part of CreativeCares.


Sincerely,

Burk

CREATIVECARES MISSION

We connect nonprofits with creative volunteers, so that together they can achieve a louder voice, a bigger presence and a greater ability to tangibly change the world.

 

NONPROFITS + CREATIVES = GREATER GOOD


There are hundreds of organizations worldwide that need the expertise of “creatives” — photographers, writers, graphic designers and production artists — to tell their story. In fact, without a powerful message, they cannot effectively reach the donors and volunteers they so desperately need, to effect real change.


The problem is that organizations working for social change are strapped for time, resources and funding. Many of these groups rely solely on charitable donations. Hiring a creative team is not a financial possibility. There are lots of worthy causes whose message is not being heard because of this.

That’s where CreativeCares comes in. Think of us as a matchmaking service for nonprofits and the creative community. We link an organization’s needs — social media strategy, photojournalism, web design, event planning, you name it — to creative professionals with the right skills and a passion for causes to work on a pro-bono basis.


With CreativeCares, they have the potential to find creative individuals in their own neighborhood, state, or even across the globe!

Nonprofits and creative professionals teaming up for the greater good — that’s what CreativeCares is all about.
