Chairman's Community Service Awards

BOSTON--(CCNMatthews - Mar 4, 2005) -

Recognized for Charitable Service to Homes First Foundation of Toronto,
Boston Ronald McDonald House and Five Acres--The Boys' and Girls' Aid
Society of Los Angeles County

State Street Corporation (NYSE:STT), the world's leading provider of
services to institutional investors, has named Jean-Francois Courville
of Toronto, James Hopkins of Boston and Diane Severino of Los Angeles as
recipients of the 2004 Chairman's Community Service Awards. The three
State Street employees were honored for making significant and sustained
volunteer contributions to charitable organizations in their
communities. The awards were presented last night by Ronald E. Logue,
State Street's chairman and chief executive officer, at the Community
Service Recognition reception held at the New England Aquarium.

The Chairman's Community Service Award recognizes State Street's ongoing
commitment to service. The award program, established in 1992,
emphasizes the importance the company places in community involvement,
corporate goodwill and serving the needs of less-advantaged citizens.
Considered among State Street's most prestigious employee honors, the
awards provide a $10,000 grant to the organizations to which the
recipients volunteer their time and service.

"Volunteers are our front-line ambassadors," said Logue. "They deliver
hands-on service to the community and put a face on State Street's
commitment to helping our communities around the world."
