Komen Irene Jebor and Buluma Fred

Abstract:
Some of the key challenges facing non-governmental organizations include failure to effectively enforce pertinent laws as they struggle to remain afloat. Lack of financial sustainability of several NGOs in Kenya is an indicator of poor organizational performance. These organizations also face the challenge of attracting enough donor funding and as such are unable to undertake their activities, programmes and projects efficiently. The objective of the study was to examine the effect of ethical practices on performance of NGOs. Both the agency and stakeholder theories guided the study. A descriptive research design was adopted. The study population comprised of the 106 accounting and management staff working with registered NGOs in Uasin Gishu County. A census approach was adopted. This study employed a research questionnaire that was both structured and self-designed. A pilot study was conducted to assess the validity and reliability of the research questionnaire. The data collected were subjected to both descriptive and inferential analyses with the facilitation of the Statistical Package for Social Sciences Version 24. Descriptive statistics comprised frequencies, percentages, means, and standard deviations. On the other hand, Pearsonís correlation, and both simple linear and multiple regression analyses constituted inferential statistics. The results of the analyses are presented in form of tables. The study results indicated that ethical practices adopted by NGOs influenced the performance of these organizations. The study concluded that ethical practices were the most important factors that influenced performance of NGOs. The study recommended that the management of NGOs should ensure that the ethical practices are upheld and improved in order to ensure that their performance is sustained
