致します ([いたします] )(itashimasu)
Meaning: do (humble) 致すと言う言葉はするの意味と一緒です

JLPT Level: 2
[ Edit This Grammar Entry ]
| Notes: |
|itashimasu is "to do" spoken in a modest manner, or which the Japanese call 謙譲語 (kenjyougo or humble language).|
私がいたします would be directed to your superior meaning that "I will do that."
It has nothing to do with "giving" or "receiving" which would be involved in 貰う and あげる.
|致します is the keigo form of suru. Although it can mean I will do, it can also take the past tense form and mean I have done. IE 致しました|
