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.
