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
    Example: I will present this to you

  [ Edit This Grammar Entry ]
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
