The research purpose was to examine the influence of available resources on organizational effectiveness. The research philosophy was positivism, with explanatory and descriptive research design espoused. The population was registered non-governmental organizations (NGOs), with the sample unit as the project managers. A questionnaire was used for data collection. Data analysis was executed using inferential and descriptive statistics. The descriptive analysis included standard deviation, mean and percentages, whereas inferential analysis included regression analysis and ANOVA. The study concluded that fundraising efforts and how funds are distributed to the various strategic activities and operations influence the level of efficiency in the organization process. Staff empowerment, negatively though, significantly influenced process efficiency. The recommendation is to develop an NGO organizational effectiveness ranking metric to allow the classification of NGOs into categories based on levels of effectiveness in achieving their respective missions and strategies. It was also the aim to carry out an in-depth study of why fundraising efforts in NGOs did not significantly influence stakeholder satisfaction.
