It is aligned with the background that funding gap has a significant influence on the corporate performance of NGOs focusing on Simukai Child Protection Programme since it incorporates expenditures as well efficiency and effectiveness of operating activities. The study’s statement of the problem revealed that lack of funds is a cause for concern that has resulted in the budget deficit and decrease in the number of beneficiaries benefiting from the programme. The researcher’s objectives outlined the funding policies in use at Simukai Child Protection Programme, the implementation guidelines, challenges in funding policies implementation, personnel skills and capacity to implement policies, financial management controls and reviews of management best practices. The descriptive survey research design was used and data was gathered through the use of structured questionnaires and interviews.
