    approval of / approval from

    When do we use 'approval from' & 'approval of' ?

    I believe 'approval from' is used in scenarios like " Approval from the goverment is required for the modernization of the airport. "

    'Approval of' is used as in the following example "The trip could be finalised after the approval of funds."

    So Generally is "approval from" used when we refer to a person , organization etc (ie animate objects) and "approval of" for inimate objects ?

    Re: approval of / approval from

    "proof" works the same way:

    You'll need proof of purchase; You'll need to prove that you purchased X, Y, and Z.

    You'll need proof from your company; i.e., from them; You'll need them to prove to us that . . . "
    All the best,
