Fonds tot Ondersteuning van Weduwen en Weezen van Doopsgezinde Predikanten in de Provincien Noord- en Zuid-Holland (Relief Fund for the Widows and Orphans of Mennonite Ministers in the Provinces of North and South Holland), usually called Noordhollands Weduwenfonds, was founded at Amsterdam on 8 April 1794. This is the oldest fund of its kind in the Netherlands. The initiative in its founding was taken in 1789 by Ragger Bos, preacher of the Noordeinde van Graft congregation, and the question was discussed at the meetings of the Rijper Societeit in 1791 and 1792. The Fund was supported by contributions made by the member congregations and ministers. In 1844 the Fund was opened to ministers in other provinces of the Netherlands.
