Nonprofits found themselves more than $525,000 richer Wednesday thanks to an intense, 36-hour campaign of online giving.

To mark its 90th anniversary, the Waterbury-based Connecticut Community Foundation issued a challenge called Give Local Greater Waterbury and Litchfield Hills.

Starting at 7 a.m. Tuesday and ending at 7 p.m. Wednesday, 125 nonprofits from 21 towns jockeyed for donations through a website that ultimately processed more than a half-million donated dollars.
