Can an honorarium be paid to an organization?

No. Honorariums are monetary tokens of appreciation in lieu of payment for services. They are payments to professional persons for services rendered when custom or propriety forbids the setting of fees. Payment is issued to individuals, not companies, and represents taxable income to the recipient.

There are limited situations where an honorarium recipient cannot receive an honorarium due to the policies of their employer. Contact the Accounts Payable Manager to discuss these unique situations.

If the honorarium recipient would like to donate the honorarium to the university or an outside organization, payment would be made directly to the honorarium recipient, and they may make the donation as they see fit.
