About the Baldrige Program and the Baldrige Foundation
Created by Congress with the establishment of the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award in 1987, the prestigious Baldrige Program is the only public-private partnership with educational outreach and a Presidential award to recognize organizations for role-model performance.
The Foundation for the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, Inc. was created a year later to provide the private sector a means of raising sufficient funds to establish and oversee an endowment that when supplemented by fees from the Baldrige Program would permanently fund the program.
