Submitted by State Street Corporation

BOSTON, MA - State Street Corporation (NYSE:STT), the world's leading specialist in meeting the needs of sophisticated global investors, announced today that its Global Philanthropy Program made 269 grants totaling over $3.2 million during the fourth quarter of 2002. The fourth quarter results bring State Street's total philanthropic giving for 2002 to $10.4 million (including forward commitments).

State Street's Global Philanthropy Program contributes to nonprofit organizations that provide community service initiatives in four primary areas of focus: education and job skills training; health and human needs; youth programs; and neighborhood revitalization. Each year, the company directs at least 1.5% of its pre-tax profits to the State Street Foundation in order to help address its communities' needs. Global Philanthropy is one of the programs that the Foundation funds. Since the Foundation's launch in 1977, some 4900 grants have been awarded worldwide totaling over $72.7 million.

Included in the fourth quarter allocation was a $99,605 contribution from the program's Disaster Relief Emergency Fund to aid victims of last August's flooding in Germany. Also included was a Special Grant last December of $720,000 to 22 agencies in Boston that aid the homeless.

State Street's Global Philanthropy Program has established 28 individual contribution committees in 13 countries, including Australia, Belgium, Canada, Cayman Islands, Germany, Japan, Luxembourg, People's Republic of China (Hong Kong SAR), Singapore, South Africa, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States.
