Raising footing level

Is there any way to raise the level of a conctrete footing after it is poured. What we have is a footing that is now about 3" above grade. The grade should be filled in for better drainage, and tha fill would almost cover the top of the footing. This is an 8" diameter footing 45" deep. I was thinking that maybe one of those precast concrete piers set on top of the footing may work. Another suggestion was to place a short piece of form tube over the existing footing like a sleeve that would extend for about 5 more inches, and then fill it with high strength concrete.

use a pre-cast pier block

No problem. Drill a hole in the footing and the pre-cast block and install a drift pin to connect the 2, so it can't move.
