Delta Waterfowl Hires Presley as Development Director

BISMARCK, N.D. — Delta Waterfowl has hired Janice Presley as development director for the East Coast, as the organization continues to grow strong support for its conservation programs.

Presley will focus on major gift procurement in the Atlantic Region, particularly in Virginia and the Carolinas. She brings more than two decades of fundraising experience to Delta, including the past 11 years at the National Wild Turkey Federation as director of development, research and stewardship. Presley also previously worked for 10 years at United Way in Aiken County, South Carolina.

“I love the fact that at Delta Waterfowl, we’re not afraid to tell people we’re The Duck Hunters Organization, and we’re proud of that,” she said. “I want to raise money for ducks. I want to strengthen support in the Atlantic Flyway by expanding upon current donor relationships and developing new ones to enhance the mission of Delta Waterfowl for years to come.”

Dr. Scott Petrie, chief executive officer, lauded the unique qualities Presley brings to the Delta Waterfowl team.

“As a leader in conservation fundraising, Janice brings more than 20 years of proven development experience — 11 of which were devoted to raising visibility and dollars for game and habitat conservation,” he said. “Her skill and knowledge in major gift research, strategy and fundraising will certainly elevate our organization.”

Presley lives in South Carolina with her husband, Tim, and 15-year-old daughter, Hannah Rae. She enjoys camping and hunting doves, turkeys and deer with her family.
