Raising funds for educational or research projects is one of the most challenging tasks for early career psychiatrists nowadays, but it represents also a strongly encouraged activity for those who want to make an impact in their community. This chapter describes the fundraising process in a stepwise manner, from the very beginning (the development of an idea), to the (successful) obtainment of a fund. It also encompasses all the steps in between: search of the ‘market’, exploration of local/external contexts, development of a strategic plan, getting into action, and verifying the outcomes. The chapter defines a practical approach to fundraising, providing the most useful hints and advice about the most common mistakes, emphasizing that success in obtaining grants grows with experience. The chapter encourages early career psychiatrists to start searching and applying for funds as the best way to learn about fundraising.
