Is this possible?

Hello all,
So I have a polygon probably around 2000 square kilometers. Within that, I have a 500m fishnet, and then I use that as a guide so I can digitize this forest (it's a point shapefile). However, there is not digitized points within every 2500m2 grid, and I'd like to know how many of these 2500m2 plots out of the total contain points within this 2000km2 polygon. Ultimately, I want the ratio of how many plots(from the fishnet) the points occur in out of the total within the whole polygon. Is this possible? Also, I do not have an ArcInfo license. Thanks so much for any input :)
