The Stop Titan Action Network received a $1.2 million grant from the Educational Foundation of America - reports the Greater Wilmington Business Journal. The EFA is based in Westport, Conn., and contributes to arts, education, environment and sustainable population issues throughout the world.

“This allows us to hire experts and fight the permitting of Titan Cement,” said Mike Giles of the North Carolina Coastal Federation, a member of the Stop Titan coalition. “The key thing is this funding is not the silver bullet, it’s not our solution, we’re still dependent on citizen involvement.”

This is the largest single donation the Titan opposition movement has received. Previously funds came from organizations, bake sales, auctions and private donations.
