Since 2009, the project has established collaborative relationships with IT corporations, universities, and city-based software developers' communities to advocate the development of a new brand of public interest sector that utilizes new media and nonprofit technology to build a better society. NGO2.0 addresses three major need categories of grassroots NGOs: communication, resources, and technology. Within each category, NGO2.0 developed and implemented online and offline projects. These include: Web 2.0 training workshops, Web 2.0 toolbox, a crowdsourced philanthropy map, news stories and videos for NGOs, crowd funding project design, NGO-CSR Partnership Forum, database of Chinese NGOs, and online survey of Chinese NGOs' Internet usage.
