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.
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.

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.
