What We Can Do: Grants
December 1, 1999
A grant is a gift of money, technical assistance, or equipment from one organization to another organization or individual. The organization awarding the grant is the grantor; the person or organization receiving the grant is the grantee. The purpose of giving money is to advance the initiatives or interests of the particular grantor.
