Firstly in order to reach out to all the students and youth with the need of financial support to further their studies ,we will firstly establish a centralized website were we will interact with them ,in order to notify them on the progress of their application an details like date of exam ,time ,location ,responsible invigilator ,examination number ,scope of the exam ,so that the learner prepares for the exam .
It is imperative for our marketing researcher exercises his/her marketing skills to find organizations, institutions, funders that are aligned to our mission and values, so that fundraiser can spend their time preparing proposals. Our advertising strategy starts with interviews with radio stations, newspapers, magazines, then television, on this advertising campaign we will be seeking for donations.
We will make a strong partnership with major retail stores, they will be engaged on a donation sub-project whereby a customer will be asked for donation, and the customer can donate any amount of money they wish to donate.
Then we will form a partnership with a bank institution whereby they will also be engaged in the same project as the one at the store, But this one’s significance is that it is intended for funders that will be contributing large sums of money, because most rich people don’t feel the financial security of donating through a website, due to scams posed by bogus organizations

Yes, a fundraising initiative can very much be controlled/supported by project management processes.

As you already indicate, you have procurement actions, communications actions, progress tracking actions and the like.

In life, many, many things are really a project and we can use our expertise to optimize delivery :)

Absolutely, but you will want to tailor the specific practices and tools to fit the complexity and unique constraints of this project.

It will also be extremely important to gain alignment and buy-in to a powerful vision for the project as you'll be relying on volunteer efforts and will want to keep volunteers engaged and focused.
