Well if you look at Dimler Chrysler the larges donator BY FAR that is a German Co. I am sure that thos companies had some stuff going in their own countries. Remember there were people that died in those towers from ALL countries. It still makes me sick to my stomach to think about that day.

BMW contributed 1 million plus the use of 10 X-5 suv's

Audi contributed as well. How much I am not sure but they did something and I believe V.W. gave alot more than you listed.
