ATSU proudly announces the relaunch of its A.T. Still Legacy Society!

October 26, 2018
Posted In: Connections

For more than 125 years, the tradition of excellence in healthcare education has endured and flourished at ATSU. This strong tradition is a direct result of the generosity of alumni and friends who have chosen to provide a lasting legacy for the University – an investment in its future.

The A.T. Still Legacy Society was established to recognize the important commitments of alumni and friends who have made planned gifts to ATSU, including bequests, charitable gift annuities, trusts, life insurance, and other future financial commitments. This society provides ATSU an opportunity to thank today’s donors for tomorrow’s gifts.

The University often receives legacy gifts from family of alumni. Family members see firsthand ATSU’s positive influence on alumni and their communities. These families want to ensure their loved one’s legacy lives on.

One such family to ensure a legacy is the Zinkons. Donald L. Zinkon, DO, ’65, was a radiologist from Manchester, Tennessee, and was a winter resident of Haines City, Florida. Dr. Donald Zinkon died in May 2004 at age 74. The alumnus donated his wealth to his son, Dennis L. Zinkon, who in turn set up a trust with ATSU-KCOM as a benefactor.

Dennis Zinkon, who was affiliated with the Professional Golf Association, felt strongly about giving back to the university that made a difference in his family’s life. He died unexpectedly July 15, 2016, from a pulmonary embolism. Upon his death, ATSU-KCOM received more than $1 million in unrestricted funds to address the College’s most pressing needs.

Families, like the Zinkons, have many ways to secure a legacy through ATSU. Your family has options to secure a legacy, too. Contact Bob Behnen, MBA, associate vice president, university advancement, with your gift idea: 660.626.2180 or
