Invalid-Funds (Invaliditeitfondsen, i.e., a fund for the pensioning of disabled ministers in the Netherlands). Soon after the ministry in the Netherlands had became a full-time occupation, foundations were established for the pensioning of retired ministers and their widows (see Algemeen Emeritaatfonds and Pensioenfonds), and usually also for invalid ministers. Groningen Conference founded a separate Invalid Fund in 1917.
