Hurricane Harvey Relief Efforts

Brent Bellm / 1 min read

Our hearts go out to all of those in Houston and the Gulf Coast impacted by Hurricane Harvey and severe flooding in the area. It’s clear that there will be many difficult months ahead for those on the front lines of this unprecedented storm. We’re an Austin-based company that feels a personal connection to those of you who have struggled through the rain and its aftermath. Here’s what we’re doing to help:

BigCommerce is coordinating employee donations to the American Red Cross, and we are matching their contributions.

We are encouraging our Austin-based employees, who are able and willing, to volunteer to host displaced BigCommerce customers and their families. My family has already hosted 9 evacuees since Saturday, and we are committed to helping as many of you as we can.

If you or your family have been displaced by the storm and are currently seeking temporary housing, or you need a place to work and connect to the internet, we encourage you to email us at A member of our team will contact you to discuss ways we can offer assistance. We will help until we run out of capacity to do so.

As a company, we are individually and collectively committed to assisting those of you whose lives and businesses have been impacted.

Best wishes as we rebuild together,

Brent Bellm
BigCommerce CEO
