Don't forget that if you have to take from your IRA (RMD) you can have the IRA cut a check to charity and it in effect becomes deductible as it isn't included in income. I believe 2011 is the last year you can do this.
What I have had some of my clients do is cut checks in January and then in December then skip a year.
