We are embarking on a $35 million fundraising campaign, the largest in the Baldrige Foundation’s history. Our goal is to build an endowment that will sustain and grow the application of Baldrige principles in the U.S. and throughout the world.
For over a quarter-century, U.S. manufacturers have embraced Baldrige and become undisputed market leaders on all continents. But today’s Baldrige Criteria for Performance Excellence go well beyond “zero defects” in manufacturing, and are assisting all types and sizes of organizations to achieve leadership positions in their industries, including service, government, nonprofit, education, and healthcare. The Baldrige Criteria focus on customer and workforce satisfaction and loyalty, intelligent risk-taking, and innovation, the very things that are needed to achieve economic success in the global marketplace.
The Baldrige Foundation’s mission is to support organizational performance excellence in the U.S. and throughout the world by ensuring continued access to Baldrige concepts and practices. The Baldrige Program is the recognized global leader in providing and promoting state-of-the-art leadership and management practices that have a proven impact on sustainable competitiveness. Today, over 100 countries look to America to provide the Baldrige Criteria that they use to improve their business, education, and healthcare organizations.
We are asking you to invest in the Baldrige Program and its impact on the competitiveness, prosperity, and well-being of people in the United States and around the world. With your support, The Campaign for the Growth of Baldrige will help the Baldrige Foundation ensure the viability and growth of the Baldrige Program throughout the 21st Century.
