Bradford Bulls have met their first target of £500,000 as the club bids to stay in business.
The Bulls announced at the end of March that they needed to raise half a million pounds by the middle of April and asked the fans to help fund their survival.
Chief executive Ryan Duckett said: "Fans, supporters, sponsors, local business and the entire rugby league community have come together in a remarkable effort.
"The directors, staff, coaching staff and players would like to sincerely thank all of those who have pledged and those who have contributed in a broader sense."
The Bulls have so far raised £506,000 as they look to achieve their £1m goal.
