The Riverside County Board of Supervisors meeting Tuesday, Feb. 28, included approval of Community Improvement Designation funding for SAFE Family Justice Centers, the Domenigoni Ranch Charity Ride for Diabetes and the Rotary Club of Menifee.

The county supervisors voted 4-0, Feb. 28, with Manuel Perez absent, to allocate $5,000 for SAFE Family Justice Centers, $2,500 to Diabetes Camping and Educational Services Inc. and $1,500 to the Rotary Club of Menifee.

Community Improvement Designation grants can be allocated to nonprofit organizations, public agencies, county departments or other organizations with programs which serve the social needs of the county’s population. Each county supervisor recommends the allocation of CID funding from his or her district budget, although a majority of the county board of supervisors is needed to approve that recommendation. Supervisor Chuck Washington recommended the District 3 allocations.

SAFE Family Justice Centers is a nonprofit with locations in Temecula, Murrieta, Riverside and Indio. Victims of domestic violence, child abuse, elder abuse and human trafficking receive services which include crisis intervention, safety planning and legal assistance. SAFE Family Justice Centers has an annual fundraiser, and the CID money will be used to subsidize the expenses of that event.

Diabetes Camping and Educational Services organizes the Domenigoni Ranch Charity Ride for Diabetes which is a fundraiser to pay for research, education and camp for children with diabetes. The CID grant will help cover costs of the charity ride.

The Rotary Club of Menifee promotes education, ethical conduct, career mentoring and humanitarian service. The CID funding will support fundraising efforts for the Rotary chapter’s programs and projects throughout the city of Menifee which focus on seniors and youth.
