In the interest of not reinventing the wheel, are there any useful websites with collections of good samples of various deliverables (project charters, status reports, communication plans, RACI matrixes, post-mortem templates, etc.)

Here is a list of Project Management Templates broken out into categories like planning, executing, controlling, closing, and other project documentation:
Here are just a few highlights:
- Project Management Plan Template - This defines PM approach, scope, milestones, schedules, communication management, and many other details of the project, in a Word/Open Office document.
- Expense Report - Spreadsheet to list item by item costs incurred on the project.
- Risk Register
- Communication Management
- Status Reports
- Cost Management - Approach, measuring costs, define reporting format, cost change control process, etc.
- Many more.
This seems very thorough and worth checking out. The templates are free to use.
Some other resources I have found... It looks like Microsoft provides quite a few templates here: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/templates/CT001226193.aspx, and Key Consulting has a number of templates here: http://www.consulting.ky/free_project_management_templates.php
