Dora, who began her new role on July 5, 2022 plans to spend time listening and learning the needs of the community before recommending any new initiatives. “It’s critically important for BLF to always listen and learn from the residents who live and work in Jefferson County to ensure we are focused on investments that deliver the greatest impact,” says Anim. “We believe good health, health care, and wellness are key to a flourishing society. Our aim is a healthier Jefferson County, supported by high quality, holistic care that can be equitably accessed by all.”

Dora was previously the COO of Greater Cincinnati Foundation where she led the design of a high-performing culture to drive growth, transformation, and results.

Morgan Hamilton

Program Manager

Morgan Hamilton serves as the Program Manager at Bethany Legacy Foundation. She graduated from Hanover College in 2019. While there, she ran cross country and track and fell in love with Jefferson County. After graduating, she served as the Director of Community Impact for a community foundation in her rural hometown. She believes in inspiring others to do their best, serving them so they can, and celebrating them when they do. In her free time, Morgan enjoys spending time with friends, reading in her hammock, and watching her favorite shows. She is most excited to be able to bring the knowledge she gained while working for a community foundation to a larger scale at Bethany Legacy Foundation and to learn the nonprofit makeup of Jefferson County and work closely with these nonprofits.
