What's the difference between an org and a project?

We use orgs and projects fairly synonymously here... I'll explain what I mean in just a moment.

There are organizations that have joined up with this community that may not have any ongoing projects. For instance, Mozilla here is a Founding Collaborator of Grant for the Web and thus a partner org, not really a project. But, the folks listed under the Grantee List here on the projects page, are indeed projects.

That said, all of the projects were created using the "organizations" feature available on the site via settings/organization. And, to be clear, partner organizations were created using this same feature. So, they're essentially the same in their capabilities, but we may refer to an org as a project depending upon the context!
