About WCC Charities
WCC Charities is the philanthropic arm of Wholesale Capital Corporation. We operate a non-profit 501(c)3 in which 100% of funds raised go directly to the causes we support, including wounded military veteran charities, local veteran memorial events and specific children’s organizations. Founded in 2007 by Ed Hoffman, owner of Wholesale Capital Corporation and host of The Main Event radio program in Southern California, WCC Charities has proudly supported organizations that include:
The Independence Fund
The Gary Sinise Foundation
Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW)
Creative Solutions for Kids
Murrieta Field of Honor
Loma Linda Ronald McDonald House
Moreno Valley Community Hospital
Ed Hoffman and Our Charity Partners
Over the past few years, we have achieved some of our most exciting goals in the history of WCC Charities. They include:
- In 2014, we raised $27,500 to purchase an all-terrain track chair to be donated to the Independence Fund (IndependenceFund.org). The track chair was given to a triple-amputee veteran who had lost both legs and an arm in an improvised explosive device (IED) incident while deployed. After the chair was purchased, the remaining amount was used to fund a retreat weekend for the caregivers of wounded veterans.
- In 2015, we raised over $75,000 for the Boot Campaign (BootCampaign.org), an organization that provides much-needed support to military families who have endured significant physical, emotional and circumstantial hardships resulting from their service and sacrifice. In our first year as a team for the Boot Campaign’s nationwide PushUps for Charity event, WCC Charities was the top overall fundraiser for the entire country.
- In 2016, we purchased a customized motorcycle that allowed Sergeant Johnny “Joey” Jones, an advocate for wounded veterans and double amputee who sustained injuries in Afghanistan, to ride again. This was the same year we began raising funds to retrofit a home for former US Navy EOD Tech Andrew Bottrell, a wounded veteran living in Southern California who is in need of a smart home in order to live more independently. This campaign will continue through our WCC Charities Auction Gala on February 25 in Riverside, California. All ticket funds will be donated to the cause; contact us for more information.
