The results are in on how North Texas Giving Day faired in its hoped-for goal of surpassing its own national record.

Last year, North Texas Giving Day, which was founded by the Communities Foundation of Texas, brought in an impressive 75,000 donations, totaling $25.2 million.

Naturally it hoped to outdo itself this year, which is exactly what it did, by raising $26.3 million during an 18-hour span on Sept. 18.

Gifts were made at a pace of 18 seconds per gift, and came from 28 countries and every state in the U.S., according to the website. There were more than 98,000 donations this year, and 1,580 nonprofits benefitted.

In all, there have been six one-day events since 2009, which have brought in $86 million for area nonprofits on North Texas Giving Day.

The full list of results — sortable by nonprofit size — and prizes is available online.
