Microsoft have announced a set of price increases for the non-profit sector from September 1, 2022. The pricing is as follows:
|Product||Current price||New price (Sept 22)|
|Office 365 E1||$2.00||$2.50|
|Office 365 E3||$4.50||$5.75|
|Office 365 E5||$14.00||$15.20|
|Microsoft 365 E3||$8.00||$9.00|
|Microsoft 365 Business Premium||$5.00||$5.50|
Microsoft call out that these price increases can be used to drive adoption of Microsoft 365 E5 – which, just as with the commercial SKUs, doesn’t have a price increase planned.
April 2022 also saw the end of Microsoft’s free grants for on-premises software – although non-profits in areas where Azure isn’t available can still get grants for Windows Server & SQL Server.
Microsoft are now making grants of 50 Windows Pro licenses available to non-profits, with additional discounted licenses being available
