The NIS Community Raffle!


Thank your for Supporting the 2020 NIS Community Raffle!

  • 2020 Raffle Drawing:  Friday, Feb. 14, 2020 at the PTA Valentines Day "Soirée"! (on the top floor of the Hilton Nagoya!)
  • Tickets Distributed Beginning January 10, 2020


As a non-profit school, NIS is dependent upon tuition and fees to operate, and like all schools, we need additional support to enrich the services we provide. NIS has been fortunate to be able to enhance the learning environment for all classes through the purchase of equipment, technology and learning materials through PTA and school fundraising in the past.

It gives us great pleasure to announce that it is NIS Community Raffle time again! This traditional event, administered by the PTA and supported by the school, is a combined effort to support the school’s fundraising efforts.

Again this year, all funds raised will support the 2020 Vision Project – as we are still short of our fundraising goal to complete the field and the stage lighting and sound equipment. The school needs a successful raffle to ensure we can finish the project in full, and we really need the efforts of the entire NIS community to sell as many tickets as possible!

This year, the culminating drawing will happen at a new, fun evening event that the PTA is organizing on  Friday evening, February 14 (6-10 pm) at the Hilton Nagoya – the PTA Soirée – a night on the dance floor at the top of the Hilton with lots of food and fun!  The Soirée evening requires separate reservations but, as always, raffle winners will be drawn from all tickets purchased, and winners do NOT need to be present at the final drawing to win!  

We are grateful for the generosity of the H&R Group, the Hilton Okinawa Sesoko Resort, the Hilton Odawara Resort & Spa, the Millennium Hilton Seoul, and the Hilton Nagoya for the grand prizes, and Japan Mobility for class prizes as well.

Thank you, all, for everyone's efforts to support the NIS community!
