HGF Vision

Our vision is to make a huge and lasting difference in the quality of life of those less fortunate, both in the UK and abroad, through the provision of financial and human resources. We raise and distribute money to our partner organisations and causes which are in line with our charity focus.

HGF History

The foundation has been created in memory of the father and grandfather of members of the founding team. Hemraj Goyal arrived in the UK from India forty years ago with the vision of a better life for his family. This vision, as well as his hard work and determination, has inspired not only his children but his grandchildren, friends and extended family to have boundless ambition. The growth of the foundation has led to HGF being an established and recognised charity in the public field.
