In 2015, Positive News editor-in-chief Sean Dagan Wood established a co-operative as the parent organisation of Positive News' publishing company. Supporters of Positive News were invited to become co-owners in the new co-operative, via a community share offer. Through its 30-day #OwnTheMedia crowdfunding campaign in June 2015, Positive News was invested in by more than 1,500 of its readers in 33 countries, age 18-89, raising more than £260,000. Positive News was the first media organisation in the world to offer community shares globally through crowdfunding. Its #OwnTheMedia campaign was also the first community share issue to run on the Crowdfunder UK online crowdfunding platform.
