A yearly timeline has been developed to let our community know about Maharishi School’s fundraising events. Our Development Office will regularly send email notifications to inform our community of friends, family, and donors about upcoming fundraising efforts.
Our major fundraising events occur in the fall, winter, and spring. Our fall fundraiser is the only time we involve the students, providing an opportunity to ask friends and family to support the school.
In addition to larger campaigns, Maharishi School Development Office hosts Pickleball and Golf Tournaments, offers ways to honor teacher’s on Teacher Appreciation Day, celebrates with you events like Winter Holidays and Valentine’s Day, and honors all families on Generations Day.

Fall: Raise Craze
Our Fall Fundraiser: Raise Craze is a unique way for us to raise money for Maharishi School while making an impact in our community. During this fundraiser, students ask friends and family for donations via the online Raise Craze platform while paying it forward serving others. What a great way for us to teach our students the importance of kindness and gratitude while raising much needed funds. Here’s a quick 2-minute video to tell you more.
Every Maharishi School student can participate in Raise Craze by completing Acts of Kindness., making an impact by spreading kindness in our community! Acts of Kindness can include many things such as writing thank you cards to the local fire department, baking cookies for a neighbor, or even telling a friend what they mean to you. The possibilities are endless, and no act of kindness is too small!
Spring Annual Fund Drive
When the spring season arrives, we reach out to our extended community to support our Annual Fund. Our supporters from around the world have a passionate belief and pride in the Maharishi School experience.
Donor gifts to the Annual Fund fuel Maharishi School’s investments in its programs and its people. These gifts have an immediate impact on the experience of current students and faculty members.
Maharishi Yagya performances are Vedic performances that promote success and good fortune for the school. Our community-wide yagyas take place each Spring. We invite everyone to participate by donating, as these yagyas strengthen the cornerstones of our community. Thank you for supporting Maharishi School and our greater community.
Winter: Season of Giving Campaign
Throughout the month of December, Maharishi School creates several opportunities, including Giving Tuesday and Matching Donations, for donors to support our Annual Fund. This unrestricted fund helps the school meet annual expenses such as employee salaries, upgrades in technology, financial aid, and materials and supplies for the classroom.
Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. It was created as a day that encourages people to do good. Giving Tuesday, held annually the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving, has grown over the years into a year-round global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. Maharishi School celebrates this event through emails sent and giveaways on social media.
Towards the end of December, we have been fortunate to have donors who will match individual donations dollar for dollar. This is a time of year when donors are looking to make a tax-deductible donation to Maharishi School, and what better way than to double the impact. During this Season of Giving, these donations support a brighter future for our dedicated faculty and staff, as well as our creative and intelligent students.
