Gopalkrishna Charitable Trust was incorporated on 31 January 2013. It is a formally registered trust with the Charity Commissioner. The trust has been awarded IT exemption under section 80G for various activities.

Gopalkrishna Charitable Trust was formed to serve the needy people in the central suburb of Mumbai and around. This trust specifically aimed at doing Medical and Educational activities for the society in line with the vision of Mr. Gopalkrishna Heroor (Founder of this trust) who was a very philanthropic person. He rose from humble beginnings and started out from a village in North Karnataka called Heroor in Shirsi Taluka.

At a very young age he had to come to Mumbai and worked at various places including working as Railway booking Clerk in order to rise through the rank in Reserve Bank of India and finally retired as Assistant General Manager. In his lifetime he did lot of philanthropic work helping many people who came from rural regions in order to settle in Mumbai helping the children to get education and helping them in their medical needs and other things.

Mr. Gopalkrishna Heroor was well-known for his helping behaviour within and outside Reserve Bank of India as well. In his memory the Heroor family decided to have a charitable trust in order to keep alive the philanthropic tradition set by him.
