Why Undesignated Estate Gifts Go Into The Permanent Endowment Program
1. If the person did not have any preference on how their gift should be used, the PEP is an excellent way to support the overall ministry of the church and that support will be in perpetuity.
2. If a gift is undesignated it can lead to serious disagreement over where and how it is to be used. If where the gift will go is clear, then disagreements and tensions in the church are reduced.
