The Australian Christian Lobby has halted donations to Israel Folau's legal fighting fund after the tally surged past $2 million on Thursday.
The sacked rugby player had a fundraising target of $3 million but has agreed to hit the "pause button" after questions were raised over how much he might actually need to fund his unlawful termination claim.
The ACL announced the move on Thursday morning, saying the more than $2 million raised so far had been achieved through contributions from more than 20,000 donors in just two days.
"ACL, Izzy, and everyone involved is humbled and grateful," the ACL said on its website.
"We are hitting the pause button.
"But if the case drags on and Israel needs more support, we will reopen this campaign.
"For now, we are thrilled that Izzy is not only supported, but a great movement of quiet Australians have found their voice. This cannot be ignored."
Folau's case is before the Fair Work Commission, with a conciliation conference scheduled for 9.30am Friday.
