BASF Donating up to $1 Million to Hurricane Harvey Recovery Efforts

BASF Corp. said it will donate $500,000 to Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts and will match up to $500,000 in donations made by its employees.

BASF Corp. said it will donate $500,000 to help with disaster relief and recovery across Texas in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.

The company said it will distribute the funds to local nonprofit organizations assisting in the relief and rebuilding efforts.

“Safety and attending to the immediate needs of our employees, their families and neighbors near our operations remains the highest priority during these challenging times,” BASF Chairman and CEO Wayne Smith said. “We stand together with the people of Texas as they recover and rebuild.”

BASF also has established a relief fund for BASF colleagues to make charitable contributions to fellow employees or to local organizations. The company said it will match contributions on a dollar-for-dollar basis, up to an additional $500,000.

For BASF employees and their families affected by the widespread flooding, the company said it is offering financial support, temporary housing, kits of personal care products, diapers and other needed supplies as well as construction and cleanup equipment and other repair products.

BASF operates 10 sites in Texas and employs nearly 3,000 people across the state. Its location in Freeport is one of the largest BASF manufacturing sites in North America.
