Do I have to add Charitable donations back into my AGI when figuring my AMT?

I was trying to give away 30% of my income this year. However, if I have to add this back for AMT calculations then I am on the hairy edge of AMT problems.

I was planning on pegging about $104,500 gross, and peg $31,350 of total charitable gifts. (5,100 cash, the rest appreciated securities).

If AMT applies to the 104,500 then I'm in trouble. If it only applies to $73,150 then I don't have a problem.
