Eleanor Chabraja

Eleanor Chabraja, a retired teacher and graduate of Indiana University, has been a Seabury-Western trustee since 2007.  She is chair of the development committee and a member of the executive committee.  She and her husband, Nicholas Chabraja, are involved in a wide range of philanthropic endeavors. In 2011, through a grant from The Nicholas and Eleanor Chabraja Foundation, they sponsored the first of Seabury-Western's Chabraja Fellowships, which are awarded to innovative church leaders who will help the seminary reshape theological education in response to the changing needs of the 21st century church.  She also co-chaired the 2011 Stewardship Campaign for Church of the Holy Spirit, Lake Forest, Illinois.
