I have a donation button on my website. Donation emails from PayPal are marked "From:" the person who donated.

How can I create a filter in Gmail to filter these emails into a label? (I'd do it by subject, but there are a variety of subjects, so I'm afraid I'll miss one.)

All the donation I received through PayPal in the past were using the subjet

Notification of donation received

Couldn't you use it? Otherwise, you can use the Has the words filter and put the words paypal donation. It's not a bullet proof filter, but it should work in most of the cases.
