Honorarium

An Honorarium is an unexpected gift, expression of gratitude, or token of appreciation presented to an individual for services which no fee is set, agreed upon, or legally obtainable. It may be monetary, but just as often is a small work of art or other appropriate expression. Honorariums are by definition modest in value. (This payment should be less than $100.00) Note: If a person is speaking or presenting, this is a guest lecturer/guest speaker. The form can be found on the purchasing web page under forms.
