Hi,

Look at Software King:

http://www.softwareking.ca/microsoft-windows/windows-23

I have purchased from them before and their software is legal.

The Windows 8.1 Pro on this site is OEM which means:

1. You can use it.
2. Zero Microsoft support.
3. You cannot move it to a new machine.

If you can live with those limitations, the price is reasonable.

You CANNOT get Windows 8.1 Pro for $30. Forget that. Not possible.

I think even Not for Profit companies pay more than $30.  

If you are Not for Profit, register at Tech Soup and see if you can get it there.

I bought a lot win8 pro's upgrade licenses. Those were new and sealed and cost about 60 USD, it was the cheapest you could get, back then. Note: UPGRADE means, to use it legally, per win8 license you will have to own one of the following: xp pro, vista business or 7 pro.

What was nice about it: those keys work on 8.1 as well (install using the generic KMS key, change to such a key and then activate). Maybe you can still find some at that rate. That could be the way for you, if you have upgradable old licenses. http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_sacat=0&LH_ItemCondition=3&_nkw=windows%208%20pro%20upgrade&_dcat=11226&rt=nc&_pppn=r1&_mPrRngCbx=1&_udlo&_udhi=80
