In September each of the district's nine school sites held a Chili Cook-Off among its staff members as the start for the district's annual United Way campaign. The nine school sites collected over $1,200 with their events, and a winner of the cook-off was recognized at each site.

The Bartlesville Regional United Way supports programs that benefit 26,534 community members in two out of every five households across Washington and Nowata county, parts of Osage County, and a bit of Kansas. This includes support for Boys & Girls Club, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Westside Community Center, and other programs that help with literacy, character-building, and providing a safe place to go after school for area youth. The organization also helps support YMCA, ElderCare, and various other programs.
