If I donate stock from my IRA to a charity, does that become a taxable event?

Can I take it as a deduction whetehr it is taxable or not?

Does the timing matter, i.e. whether I have already taken my full RMD or not? Which should be done first - the RMD or the donation or doesn't it matter?

Thanks.
