Christina Stichting was a foundation which had its seat at Amsterdam and owed its existence to a bequest made by Christina de Bosch Kemper, an outstanding Dutch Mennonite, who died in 1924.

The funds, which were administered by a board of Mennonite regents, were assigned to the purpose of improving the lot of unmarried women or widows by financial support. First and foremost the founder intended to help Mennonites, but other women were also considered.
