Offering resources—typically in the form of capital, but sometimes in the form of time and labor—to support a project or program that requires funding is referred to as funding. Typically, a company invests in subsidiaries or enterprises to get funds from external sources while "financing" their operations. Funding can come from various sources, including venture capital, donations, grants & subsidies. Fundings that enable the exchange of equity ownership for capital investment are crowdfunding.
