I have added Event Venue, Educational Institution and Non-Profit Organization to our categories. Event Venue search brings us up but the other two do not. Do they have to be approved by Google or something?

Robert,

I see them on your listing just fine (http://www.google.com/mapmaker?gw=39&fid=0x882307300e9103ef:0x40b2def513cc4129). Google generally only displays one of the categories publicly on your listing but the others are all still there.

I guess I was not clear. When I do a search for Event Venue we show in results, but not when searching for Non profit organization or Educational Institution.

Robert, I get you listed - you're just not in the top 3. If you click below the top 3 where it says "more places" you'll get a list of businesses and you're in there.

 

If you want to read more about how to improve your ranking, I'd suggest starting with these guides:
