Donations vs Sponsorship:

PJIAE identifies a difference between Donations and Sponsorships. PJIAE classifies Sponsorship as a contribution towards a organisation/event/project that includes some commercial activities; ie; tickets will be on sale.

PJIAE typically classifies Donations as a contribution usually towards a charity organisation, educational institution or project with no commercial activities.
