Best Themes For A Murder Mystery Fundraiser

Updated on March 14, 2013

Murder Mystery Parties Are A Fun Way To Raise Money For A Charity

Forget the boring fundraisers that require everyone to spend a lot of money to go to a event they would rather sleep through. Murder Mystery Fundraisers are a great way to raise money and entertain a large group as well as a small group. Not only are your group more likely to get ticket sales to a party that will entertain them but they are also likely to bring guests that would of probably never of came other wise.

You are the boss of your fundraiser. You can have a large party or you can split up into little groups. In groups that have access to buildings such as churches, schools or large buildings with lots of rooms you can have different themed parties in different rooms. Let your guests make reservations to the room they want to participate in. Then have a designated host in each room.

Themes For A Murder Mystery Fundraiser

There are way to many themes to cover but here are a few of my favorite. Remember the theme goes as strong as you make it. You can make dressing up mandatory or just suggest they dress up for more fun.

Murder Mystery Dinner Theater Fundrasier Party Ideas - Murder Mystery Party - Pasta, Passion and Pistols

If the group you are doing a fundraiser loves food and you have a place where a kitchen is readly available this party theme idea would be super fun. I have been to a fundraiser similar to this with a youth group, the older kids love cooking and the younger kids had a great time helping.

Back Yard Murder Mystery Party Fundraiser Idea - Murder Mystery Party - A Murder on the Grill

Cowboy Themed Murder Mystery Fundraiser Idea

This country western theme would be a good fundraiser party idea for about any time of year. I have seen this idea be carried out in several ways. A young group fundraiser used this theme for a Halloween party and all their guest came dressed costumed in western wear. I have also seen this theme for a Fourth of July Party where there was lots of flags and firecrackers combined with cowboy hats.

      I have been to a Murder Mystery Party. Actually it was a Murder Mystery Dinner Theater and I was one of the actors. It was so much fun! I had to write a lens about it.
