The Unifour Foundation Inc. was created in 1996 with the proceeds from the sale of the Hickory Merchants Association’s credit reporting company to Equifax, and the Unifour Foundation Endowment Fund was then established with the North Carolina Community Foundation in 1998. The Unifour Foundation Endowment Fund promotes general welfare among citizens in the four counties that comprise the Unifour area: Alexander, Burke, Caldwell and Catawba.
