Microsoft should not increase non-profit prices dramatically and without notice
We as a non-profit organisation recently received a greater than 50% increase in the price of our subscription without any notice.
1) Microsoft should recognise that most non-profit organisations are focused on delivering their benefits and such a dramatic price increase has an impact on this
2) As a very minimum there should be considerable (6 months?) notice of price increases, with the option to cancel subscriptions without penalty, so non-profit organisations can plan accordingly
So totally agree with the other comments that the price increase for us non-profit organisations of almost 50% is unreasonable. No warning was given either, so we cannot discuss our options moving forward and we seem to be stuck.
Why was the price increase so high? We are non-profit organisations that need to be very careful with our administration costs. Please assist us.

Same issue here - 84% increase for our licence cost. This is a massive hit for our non-profit, and we had no chance to even budget for this change.
