From BMW Press:

The BMW Group has pledged a donation of $1 million to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund to aid the victims of Hurricane Katrina. In addition to that contribution, each of the BMW companies based in the U.S. will match employee contributions. There are more than 7,000 employees based in BMW companies in the U.S.

BMW Financial Services is working with customers individually to develop extended payment plans to its BMW and MINI customers. Additionally, many other relief efforts are underway, organized by various employees, departments and divisions of BMW in the U.S.

“Our hearts go out to all those who have been adversely affected by this disaster and we want to offer financial assistance, in addition to our thoughts and prayers,” said Tom Purves, chairman and CEO of BMW (US) Holding Corp.
