In response, the company held a Hurricane Harvey fundraising campaign to raise money for employees whose homes had been damaged. The company matched all donations and contributed an additional $2,000 to kick-off the fundraiser.  Over the course of two weeks, Katalyst employees around the globe donated over $4,600 to help their coworkers in need.
