Bartlesville Virtual Tip Jar


Downtown Bartlesville in Early Spring

Help Support Service Industry Workers

Our community is a very close knit family, and when someone needs help we all pitch in to make it happen. In that spirit, there are many people who want to do what they can to help during this trying time related to the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic.

Welcome to the Bartlesville Virtual Tip Jar, where you can help support our local employees and business owners who’s establishments and means of financial support are not being patronized as often – or at all – during this unprecedented event in our town, state, nation and world.

Do Good. Give Someone a Tip

Consider sending a "tip" to your favorite server, stylist, barrista, aesthetician, bartender, etc., during this time of need.

Use the Google Sheet linked below to find a list of tip recipients who work right here in Bartlesville and Dewey that you can directly support, which we will continue to compile and update. On the list, you'll find each indivudual's information, work status, and their Venmo, Paypal, Zelle, or Cash App info, which you can use to send them a virtual tip.*

If you don't see your favorite service industry folks listed, encourage them to come and fill out the form (see below).

Do you work in the local service industry in Bartlesville or Dewey? Has your income been reduced or lost due to the coronavirus?

If so, please submit your Venmo, PayPal, Zelle, or other cash app payment information so that we can add you to the Bartlesville Virtual Tip Jar master database of opportunities for people to help. There is no financial or data risk involved and this is public information that you would ordinarily provide to someone making a peer-to-peer transaction every day.

We will work to get the word out by any means possible on social media, email, etc. This way people can leave an extra tip they may have given if they were able to come in or buy an extra meal that they may not currently be able to buy. Maybe even just help financially for the people in their favorite establishment.

Please feel free to reach out to Chris Batchelder directly at or by DM at @batch864 on Twitter.

Thanks for all you do to make our community strong and thanks for allowing us the opportunity to show how much we appreciate you.
