Make: Magazine Volume 01 was published in the spring of 2005, and after Maker Media ceased operations in June 2019, Dale Dougherty, who had started Maker Media, started a new company, Make Community LLC and acquired the assets of Maker Media. Make: Community is dedicated to serving the maker community by helping it grow and become stronger. It is a membership-supported organization that in addition to publishing the magazine also organizes Maker Faire and Maker Camp.

“I continue to be excited to publish each issue of Make: magazine,” said Dale Dougherty. “I know it has inspired a generation of people young and old to see themselves as makers and as part of a global community.”
