Born in to a family that had a rich tradition of social work and philanthropy the Late Gopalrao Apte, the founder of Vidya Mahamandal, was the son of the Laxmanrao Apte. Laxmanrao Apte a legendary teacher and recipient of the Raibahadur, was renowned for his compassion towards his students, and had given shelter and a home to many a student in need. 

With such an inspiration, it came as a no great surprise that Gopalrao himself was motivated to setup an educational institution which would impart quality education to one and all.

With this dream in the year 1961 Vidya Mahamandal Society was founded, along with a group of similarly inspired individuals, who became the founder members. 6000 sq. ft. of land belonging to the Apte family was donated to the Vidya Mahamandal Society for this purpose. 

The founder members of Vidya Mahamandal namely P. G. Vaidya, N. C. Joshi, V. G. Apte and M. D. Paranjape set to work with zeal. Their ardent efforts paid off in a very short time. Encouraged and pleased with this progress, the late Gopalrao Apte once again donated his family land, this time 13000 sq. ft. to the Society.

Thus today, the Vidya Mahamandal Family, with its various educational institutes stands on this land donated generously by the Apte Family.

Thousands of students today are studying in the various educational institutes of the Vidya Mahamandal.
