First Time Paying “employee” Help Please

Hello all!

I recently took over as treasurer for our non-profit homeschool co-op. Everyone who runs the organization is a volunteer and always has been. However, there is one job, in particular, that is well…a nightmare. We would like to compensate this person a lump sum of $800 for her work in the organization.

My question is, does this make her an "employee"? Is it a "gift"? Do I need to file a 1099 for this?

Thank you so much for your help. The rest of the board just voted to give this money to this person and now it's my job to figure out the "how".
