Quite simple actually.  From www.apache.org home page:

"The Apache Software Foundation provides support for the Apache
community of open-source software projects. The Apache projects are
characterized by a collaborative, consensus based development process,
an open and pragmatic software license, and a desire to create high
quality software that leads the way in its field. We consider
ourselves not simply a group of projects sharing a server, but rather
a community of developers and users."

httpd just happens to be the most well known software supported by,
and associated with, apache.  Others include spamassassin, tomcat,
