BISMARCK, NORTH DAKOTA — The Delta Waterfowl development team has brought on St. Louis native, Michael Coleman, to their team of major gift fundraising professionals. The new development director will represent The Duck Hunters Organization as it continues to grow strong support for its conservation, hunting, and waterfowl research programs.

Coleman will lead the Duck Hunters Organization’s efforts to engage, motivate, and inspire Delta’s loyal base of donors and volunteers in the St. Louis area. His role is responsible for expanding the reach of the organization, inviting new waterfowlers to join the Delta initiative, and additionally, raise awareness and funds in support of waterfowl conservation and the most pressing needs and opportunities presently faced by waterfowl hunters.

“Michael comes to Delta with a wealth of sales and leadership experience,” said Todd Burns, vice president of major gifts for Delta Waterfowl. “As a native of St. Louis, he has an invaluable and extensive understanding of the duck scene and a relentless passion for the outdoors. He is a fantastic addition to the organization, and we are thrilled to see the impact he will make for ducks and duck hunters.”

Coleman’s background includes a degree in mass communications from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, followed by a valuable career in the point-of-purchase beverage industry where his focus revolved around sales, leadership, and furthering relationships. He will leverage his talents to bolster support of the organization’s mission throughout the state.

“I started waterfowl hunting after high school and attended a few Delta Waterfowl events where I fell in love with the science-based approach,” said Coleman. “I am very passionate about leaving the world a better place for my two sons and am most excited about helping the St. Louis community come together to put one million more ducks in the air each year.”

Coleman is based in the greater St. Louis area and can be reached at
