    would be interested in


    There are two sentenses,
    1. The orgnization is interested in funding the program.
    2. The orgnization would be interested in funding the program.

    Do these two sentenses have the same meaning? or the sentence No.2 is just expressing a guess and No.1 is definiite.

    Is my understanding correct?

    Thank you so much!

    Re: would be interested in

    They do not have the same meaning. The first is definite; the second is tentative, but likely.
