A Go Fund Me page set up in the wake of Johann Ofner's death has already surpassed its goal in just 24 hours.
Johno MacNeil, a friend of the 28-year-old who was killed in a film set tragedy in Brisbane on Monday, set the page up to help take some of the financial burden away from Ofner's family and loved ones.
"Let's all band together to support his grieving family including his daughter he has left behind," Mr Macneil said.
At 9am on Wednesday, 341 people had donated a total of $20,545.
Samaya Grace is the mum of Ofner's 6-year-old daughter, and said she can't express just how grateful she is for the community's support.
Ms Grace said the money will help keep her daughter's life as normal as possible in the wake of the tragedy.
"Every single one of you are (sic) contributing to helping me continue all my daughters needs and so she can keep on track with her training and activities, because she wanted (and even more so now) to be a ninja just like her daddy and hero," she said on the Go Fund Me page.
Mr Offner was a stuntman, and was set to be on Channel Nine's reality tv show Australian Ninja Warrior later this year.

Police say they haven't ruled out criminal charges as they continue to investigate the death.
Detectives will recreate the scene with witnesses at the Brooklyn Standard bar in Brisbane no Wednesday, to try to work out what went wrong.
Mr Ofner was killed in a simulated gun-fight being shot for a Bliss N Eso music video.
A statement from the Australian Hip Hop group says he was shot in the chest with a shotgun loaded with blanks.
