A: That is a good question. I would say that apparatus relates to equipment used in labs which are non-machines and also equipment you can find in gyms. It can also be used at times to describe the functioning of for example the government apparatus, espionage apparatus or the digestive apparatus. Equipment on the other hand can ve divided into a couple of sections: non-mechanical which can be things like kitchen equipment, measuring cups, knives (all hand tools). Then you will have mechanical machines which are things like sewing machines, mechanical diggers. The third category are powered machines. They are powered by either gas, steam or electricity. The examples of these are countless from steamboats to certain heavy and light machinery.
I hope this gives you an idea of both and their differences.

Q: What does "apparatus" of "fundraising apparatus" mean?


Context>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Cohen rode Trump’s coattails to prominence and recognition in GOP circles, even though he wasn’t actually a Republican until early 2017. His closeness to Trump earned Cohen a spot on the Republican National Committee’s finance leadership team shortly after the inauguration. In late March, Cohen bragged that he’d raised $500,000 for the party in a single day.
In reality, those with knowledge of the RNC’s fundraising apparatus say Cohen’s position was largely ceremonial, and that his actual fundraising hauls were minimal. Essentially, he wasn’t a significant player at the RNC, and was offered the gig merely because of his association with Trump. He has since resigned from the finance post.
A: Apparatus is a less common word meaning machine. Here it refers to the whole that goes into fundraising, the people calling, paid dinners, websites asking for money, etc.

All the individual parts are like the gears in a machine.
