United Way of Summit County raised a record-breaking $12.2 million in its 2013 United Way/Red Cross Campaign.

The agency announced the total Wednesday, noting that this is the fourth consecutive year the charity has set a fundraising record.

Donations last year topped the previous record, set last year, by $400,000.

“United Way provides an uncommon value that no other nonprofit can offer,” Jim Merklin, United Way campaign chair and partner of Bober Markey Fedorovich, said in a prepared statement.

“We raise money that benefits not only our funded agencies, but really provide a conduit for philanthropy in our community.”

The United Way is reviewing where to distribute the money.

“Summit County residents are amazingly generous with their time and dollars,” Katie Rennard, United Way’s senior vice president of resource development, said in a statement. “We owe a debt of gratitude not only to the thousands of individuals who give to United Way, but also to the hundreds of leaders who volunteered their time, passion and influence toward the campaign’s success.”
