Wall St. Journal:  “Milton Hershey had no children so he said he would make the “orphan boys of the United States” his heirs.  To that end, the chocolatier founded the Milton Hershey School, which today serves 1,700 underprivileged children and has an endowment of $6.2 billion.  In 2005, Hershey had the nation’s fifth largest endowment, which was about half the size of Princeton’s and Stanford’s but larger than that of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.”
