Protect The Hersheys’ Children, Inc. (PHC) is a nonprofit organization seeking comprehensive
reform of the Milton Hershey School (MHS) Trust.
With resources totaling over $9 billion, MHS should be saving children’s lives on a different
order of magnitude than has been the case, utilizing best practices and led by America’s top
child welfare professionals.
But instead, MHS assets have been misused for decades; program development has been stunted;
and MHS board non-child agendas have produced inferior leadership.
PHC is committed to ushering in a new MHS dawn. We want MHS to serve children in numbers never
before achieved and to deploy assets with maximum benefit for needy children.
PHC’s reform goals include:
- Ending MHS Board conflicts of interest
- Barring leadership self-enrichment
- Stopping misdirection of assets
- Removing partisan politics from all decisions
- Ending poor child welfare policies
- Hiring and promotion of MHS leaders on the basis of merit
- Creating an MHS Board whose core consists of child welfare professionals
