Heather Bennett Appointed as Director of Advancement of Center for Child Counseling

Center for Child Counseling (CFCC) announces Heather Bennett as director of advancement to play a crucial role in raising funds for the Palm Beach County-based nonprofit, supporting its mission through developing long-term organizational sustainability.

“We are thrilled to promote Heather to our leadership team to lead our donor stewardship and cultivation efforts. Her work supports our work in helping children and families with the prevention and healing of adverse childhood experiences and trauma,” stated Renée Layman, chief executive officer of Center for Child Counseling. 

Heather Bennett is a dedicated nonprofit advancement professional with more than ten years of experience in business development and client services. Since earning her bachelor’s degree at Nicholls State University in Louisiana, Heather has thrived in collaborative team environments in which she could serve the needs of clientele in tandem with the needs of the organization. 

“Through personal experience as a child and young adult, I understand the obstacles to accessing proper mental health services, as well as the valuable, positive impact counseling may have on one’s life. I am eager to combine this passion for mental health advocacy and my skills in development operations and donor stewardship,” said Bennett. 

In her new role, Bennett leads the organization’s donor stewardship and cultivation efforts, managing all fundraising activities, including: overseeing donor stewardship, legacy giving programs, coordinating the Circle of Giving, developing the CFCC Events Committee, and coordinating special donor appeals.
