Our Maharishi School community has great memories of the Spring Raffle “back in the day”, and now over 20 years later, has been asking for its’ return. We want to bring back that “memory” and memorable experiences to our VILLAGE of supporters!

While there’s nothing like winning an Airbnb vacation or your own Peloton, this year’s family-friendly event “It Takes a Raffle”—online like the rest of the world—is created to feel like a real celebration. Designed to unite our global school community, it will feature video messages and entertainment from alumni around the world, as well as conversations with Dr. Beall and Maharishi School students. Lots and lots of valuable prizes will be drawn randomly throughout the evening, all leading up to the announcement of our five Grand Prize winners.


You can choose to purchase tickets for either one or any of our FIVE amazing prizes. They include: 

  • $2,500 Airbnb Vacation Credit: ANYTIME-ANYWHERE
  • YOUR CHOICE: $1,000 Patagonia or Nike Package
  • Peloton Bike, including a one-year Membership 
  • YOUR CHOICE: Apple iWatch or Apple iPad Air, PLUS iPod earbuds
  • $2,000 Maharishi School Tuition Credit


By purchasing tickets for only one great prize, you increase your chances of winning that dream vacation — or spread out your purchases and buy any number of tickets for several different prizes. Lots of choices, lots of amazing prizes!
