Heinrich Neufeld, the pastor of the Ibersheim, Palatinate, Germany, Mennonite congregation, published in commemoration of the third centennial of the death of Menno an appeal to all the Mennonite churches in the Old World and the New to create a general fund for the support of the widows of Mennonite ministers and a large endowment for Mennonite students of theology (Menn. Bl., 1859, 23). Carl J. van der Smissen, pastor of the Friedrichstadt congregation, took up the idea and named it Menno-Stiftung (Menno Endowment). He envisioned a comprehensive world-wide federation of Mennonites. The proposal was warmly welcomed by Johannes Risser and Johannes Molenaar, with the amendment that a fund be established in each congregation for church expenses and needs under this name. Christian Schmutz of Rappenau, however, rejected the idea. Only the Friedelsheim congregation had a "Menno-Stift," which served the congregation well.
