Creative Cares

Burk Jackson



Burk Jackson - Founder

 In 2010, Burk left the for-profit commercial photography world and founded CreativeCares. CreativeCares matches creative professionals with nonprofit organizations who are in need of help with advertising, marketing and telling their story to the public. 

Burk led CreativeCares to be named the Best New Nonprofit in Oregon by Portland Monthly’s Light a Fire Awards 2011. He was also first runner-up at the AMD VISIONary of The Year Awards.

Burk’s photographic work was featured in a solo exhibition and fundraiser at Portland’s City Hall. At the event, his photographs of the The Meyhayo Centre for Disabled Youth in Tanzania brought awareness to how civic leaders and the creative class could work together to solve global issues.

Additionally, Burk was featured as part of the Best of 2010 by The American Society of Media Photographers for his innovative work combining the needs of the creative community and nonprofit organizations.

Burk lives in Portland, OR with his lovely wife and 3 wonderful children. Between work and family, Burk enjoys swimming, sailing, travel, and a quiet moment to himself over a good cup of coffee.
