Are monetary awards from private foundations and donor advised funds always grants?

When given to a public charity (i.e, a 501c3) Or can they be donations in some cases?

Basically, my question is whether private foundations and donor advised funds can legally give donations or if they are required to use grants as the mechanism for disbursing funds.

Thanks for any insight.
