Duke Ligon founded Mekusukey Oil Company in 1970 and led the Oklahoma City company to become one of the largest private mineral owners in the country with more than 79,000 net minerals across more than 450 countries. Beyond his professional obligations, Duke Ligon serves as a member of the board of directors for the St. Anthony Foundation. The St. Anthony Foundation maintains several projects, including the Sister’s Fund.
The Sister’s Fund supports patients of St. Anthony Hospital and provides free prescription medication services to individuals receiving healthcare from the hospital. Donations to the fund help patients experiencing financial difficulties that prevent them from affording essential prescription medication. In addition, the fund offers short-term aid by connecting patients with other community resources.
Donors can choose to send one-time monetary gifts of any amount they choose or set up monthly gifts by selecting the Sister’s Fund as the gift designation on the online donation page. The minimum amount to fund a prescription for a needy patient is $20.
