Someone paid me to speak at a funeral--if I give the money away, do I need to report it on taxes?

An individual asked me to speak at their loved one's funeral and paid me to do it. I don't do this for a living, and totally forgot to report the check when I did my taxes. I have plenty of time to file an ammended return, but IF I give that money away, would I even need to file an ammended return?
