Donations to funeral costs
The Umina community donated more than $20,000 in 14 days for the funeral and associated costs of Umina resident Blake Wilson, who committed suicide.
Ms Keah Evans started the Go Fund Me campaign on June 6.
"No words can describe the overwhelming sadness Blake's passing has caused.
"What will live on is the memories," Ms Evans said.
"The memories we all shared with Blake will be in our hearts forever."
More than 300 people donated to the cause, passing the original target of $12,500 by more than $8500.
The Umina Bunnies Seniors rugby league team held a Suicide Prevention Charity Night in memory of Mr Wilson at The Ettalong Diggers on June 24.
All proceeds raised from the evening went to the Suicide Prevention Foundation.
