The Oppenheimer Project was started by Charles Oppenheimer, J. Robert Oppenheimer’s grandson. It is the official family organization designed to promote the legacy of JRO (as we often refer to him in the family).


The Oppenheimer Project is currently organized as a fiscally sponsored project via the Social Good Fund.

Primary activities to date have been funding existing organizations aligned with our mission.
