Ramakrishna Mission was founded by Vivekananda in 1897 is a humanitarian and spiritual organisation which carries out medical relief and educational programs. Both the organisations have headquarters at the Belur Math. The Mission acquired a legal status when it was registered in 1909 under Act XXI of 1860. Its management is vested in a Governing Body.
